Musicians and Monotypes

I often sketch local musicians when I attend shows.  There are scores of sketches now — here are just two examples.  I make monotypes from such sketches by tracing a sketch on plexiglas.  I then turn the plexiglas over and paint on the reverse with Akua inks.  After I finish applying ink, I run the plate through my etching press.  The results are exemplified here when I used different sketches.


Two for the blues.


I will be making monotypes from many of the musician sketches.
