Painting structure

Another 6x8 monotype, this time trying to collage drawings and ideas in a painterly way. All the colour is invented.  What I notice about working with Akua Intaglio inks is that cleaning between colours is problematic because although you can do it with water you really need warm soapy water and then the brush should dry and when I am working quickly I just never seem to realy clean my brushes properly so I get a muddy feel unless I am fastidious, which I never am...

I also forgot to roll the release agent onto the image before printing until I had the paper ontop of it, so I had to lift up the corners and roll and I got bits of red all over the place, accidentally. 

I took a photo of the plate before I printed it.  It's interesting to see how different the final print is...
