This is an interesting composition. Can you tell me what medium you used for the monoprint? Ink, Watercolor, oils....?

Its a huge collection I have of pieces that are individual pieces no copies... all were done in ink on plexiglass and if I liked image I worked mainly wipe with rags and mineral spirits to draw image out of the ink pressed on the surface. If I liked how it looked...I would print it...
Many pieces I would just wipe the glass clean and start over but if it came out like I wanted I would go to next step and run through press on paper....
I really like this technique it reminds me a bit like a charcoal technique I used where you rub charcoal to fill paper and erase the image out of the darkness... Real neat technique but can be messy so you have to wash up allot as you go so you do not mess up your papers edging and so forth....
Thanks for asking...

I always enjoyed working with charcoal like that too. I haven't tried it with printers ink though. Guess I am going to be doing some experimenting this week.
Have you tried printing one over the ghost of another monoprint?

Why have you done such a technique in other mediums??
Thanks for the comment maybe its an idea in future to try.....

This piece is a linoleum cut over a ghost of a monoprint. You just need to make sure that it is good and dry before you add the second layer. Remember in doing monoprints on plexiglass that you can do a linoleum piece first and then put the plexi over it to add color in where you want it. Just make a template of the paper and the plate so that you get the registration you want.
You can also do the same thing with a ghost of another piece. Put it under the plexi and paint where you want to add more color, or overlap an image. You would be surprised at the results you get.
