Drat. Now there's more ideas in my head. ;)

I'm not sure about this one, will have to think about it. But I like the idea of a second image overlapping the first. I have 2 pieces by an artist who works in enamal and he's done something similar with an area on the painting that's a photo-etch with a clear boundary. The idea of two image planes. Hmmm...

The monoprint underneath is great - intersting texture and composition. I was going to say the intaglio on top didn't work for me, but the contrast of the facial expressions keeps drawing my eye. Er, is that a toilet on the right? :)

timelady - txs for responding. This was done during that "beginning artist-full of angst" period" LOL!

Here's another example of overlaying printmaking techniques. This is a woodcut I did transferred to "image on" (brand name) film and processed via non-toxic emulsion techinique (see Ken Howard) over monotype with "ghost prints" of woodcut also.

That one looks familar. maybe you've posted it before? Angst can obviously be a good thing.

Well, tomorrow's a studio day (because I have lots of practical business type work to get done, so of course I won't and will paint instead). So I think I'm going to pull out the perspex and do some monoprints. I have a bunch of old copper drypoints I can play with on top then...hmmm... might consider some sort of collage too.

I like the mix of printmaking techniques. I've been thinking of doing some chine colle on a mono print using the intaglio plate. I like pushing the envelope with printmaking. There are so many things you can do. Your last and second image are more restful for my eyes, and believe me I need all the rest I can get these days........lol Thanks for sharing these with us.
