Mangata monoprints - exploring the theme

Three monoprint explorations on the mangata theme. They are experiments in technique as much as concept. There is something very meditative and calming about trying to capture this idea which I hope comes across in the images. After using paynes grey oil paint in the previous posts drypoint I treated myself to a new etching ink by Charbonnel in the same colour. This is what I have used in Mangata I & II below. It's a little bluer in colour but perfect for this subject I think.

Thank you Rhonda. I have been reading about this solstice's strawberry moon - a new one on me. It sounds rather delicious ;o) We had clear nights so it was a sight to see - rather inspiring!


I particularly like this mono print Lisa ... Lots of beautiful mono prints etchings
