Monotype printing day

I've been making monotype prints for a while now.  I usually use opaque paints to make prints on black paper: I enjoy the bold contrasts and deep colors that approach gives me.  

After some planning (and restocking with transparent acrylics), I decided to branch out.  Transparent layers on white paper are also fun!  The thinner emulsion (Golden Open, in bottles) also lifts more easily, so it is easier to make patterns in it with tools.  I used every sheet of paper in the pad, and then played around a bit more with leftover paper from another project.

This was a good way to relax after recovering from a migraine AND having to do a bit of office work!
