Early Snow—foam plate monoprint

Here’s another one from the bottom of the basement studio pile. This one, however, needed a little addition.  It was brilliantly coloured up close, but step away, and it dissappeared into a buff mass.  This time, I chose to ‘dry-brush’ in the the ‘snow’ with white gouache. I stroked the brush horizontally across the image, and it picked up the texture of the monoprint beneath.

I can’t resist another close-up.
