Gelatin monoprints


tiff gelatin monoprint with india ink by susan schwake
Here is one of my gelatin monoprints which is part of a larger series of ink on ink. Freehand ink drawing onto backgrounds of lush layers of printmaking ink floated on slabs of gelatin. I did a little tutorial on this here and am getting ready to set some dates for some weekend workshops in the studio here.
Today is a rainy-get-things-done-inside day so it's perfect for wrapping up some pieces which are going to a show down in Rhode Island pretty soon.... but more on that later!
