Last one. Another view of a few NYC Urban Sketchers on the High Line. Again, referred to a previous sketch which was originally drawn in one of my gridded notebooks and colored using iPat. The ink remaining on the plate after I finished the transfer monotype was sufficient enough to work on and put through the press. One minute I like that one and the next minute not so much. Anyway, remember that Klee’s paintings inspired me. There’s always hope for a masterpiece.

A piece of thin Japanese printmaking paper was placed onto an inked copper plate and, with a ball point pen that no longer had ink, I drew, referring to a drawing I made, from direct observation, on the back of the Japanese paper. This was the resultant transfer monotype.
