Belle Isle Reflection II

Image of Belle Isle Reflection II


An Original Monotype
Image size - 4.5x6" plate
This is an original, one of a kind monotype print of a reflection and water lilies on a Belle Isle lake. It is printed with Kelsey black oil based ink on white Rives paper.

This monotype print was made by inking a zinc plate with a roller, then removing and drawing into the ink to leave a design. Damp paper is then place on the plate and this is put through the press. The ink is transferred from the plate to the paper, so only one print can be made. There is a ghost image left on the plate. This is the second monotype re-worked from the ghost image from the first print.
This print is presented in a board backed clear protective sleeve and packed carefully with extra card for strength.

It is unmounted and unframed. It is numbered 1/1 signed and dated
