Again, I had too much ink on the plate when I did this transfer monotype. Nothing acrylic paint couldn’t fix. A mess of a portrait transformed.

JKPP = Julia Kay’s Portrait Party

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 JKPP Flickr group photo (that I reversed using my iPad), on the back of the Japanese paper. The result was a Transfer Monotype.

Oil based printing ink, Japanese paper, acrylic paint.
