un monotype coloré - a monotype in color

Moi / Me. monotype sur papier
monotype on paper
- 13x9 cm. 2008


Premier essai de monotype en couleur. J'ai retouché l'impression dans certaines couleurs claires qui ne gardaient pas la fraîcheur de la couleur telle que je l'imaginais en peignant la plaque. La peinture à l'huile et le diluant, si déposés en une seule couche, ont tendance à foncer le papier, si bien que pour avoir une idée du résultat tel qu'il sera imprimé, il est sans doute préférable de peu diluer la couleur, mais de peindre très légèrement, et de le faire sur une plaque de cuivre plutôt qu'avec la méthode du plexiglas posé au dessus d'une feuille de papier blanc, support trop lumineux.



My first color monotype. I painted a bit over some lights areas of the print, where it was more darker than I thought it would be while painting. A sole layer of oil and mineral spirits tends to darken paper, so that it is difficult to to get an idea of the brightness of the print. My guess it is better to avoid painting with much mineral spirit and impastos ; and to use a copper plate rather than a plastic one over a white sheet of paper, so that you see the picture quite dark, with the copper appearing underneath. You'd be easily fooled by the brightness of the paper when using a plastic plate.

Really wonderful! I loved doing monotypes in school. I'm suprised you don't see more of it in illustration. I like "painterly" look of this.

Thanks,Eric. I don't know how it is in America, but here in France I think it is hard to find books with illustrations in monotype. I guess art directors are not that interested in this kind of pictures ; too "painterly" indeed.

Thanks, Sorrentino! (and you've got beautiful pictures on your blog.)

I'm fond of BWS's work, indeed. I especially love his B&W drawings, his quite classical manner.

In order to acquire wealth it is usually a thoughtful belief to start a savings or investing plan as soon in life as achievable. But don't fear if you have not started saving your assets until later on in life. As a consequence of hard work, that is investigating the best investment vehicles for your cash you can slowly but surely increase your riches so that it measures to a large sum by the period you hope to retire. Inspect all of the achievable asset classes from stocks to real estate as investments for your money. A researched and diversified portfolio of investments in a wide range of asset classes can help your money multiply throughout the years.

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!
