Sea sky - Oil Monoprint

A Monoprint is a unique piece of art created using printing techniques. Here I used winsor and newton oil paints. I painted these onto a canvas and then when I was happy laid a piece of paper over the top.
I used my hands to smooth out the paper ( hand pressed) and then lifted up the edge pulling away the resulting image. With this technique it is possible to get results that are difficult or impossible to achieve any other way.
This piece I decided to leave as it is. Other oil monoprints I have left to dry and will be working on the top of them with oil paint or ink in the near future.
