Monotype Process

Each Monotype is a unique original print. These Monotypes are created by painting your image in reverse in Oil paint diluted with Linseed oil or White Spirit onto glass, then carefully laying the paper in position over the glass and rubbing down hard with a Baren. The paper is then carefully peeled back to reveal the print. Any mistakes or printing errors can then be touched up, normally the eyes which are arguably the most important aspect of a portrait.
