LEAVING CAPE COD

  litho/monoprint   III/IV   13”X18.5”
These prints are based on “Drawings From a Moving Car”.  Instead of drawing on paper I chose to draw directly onto litho/polymer plates.  The advantage is to retain the original fresh response and then print directly from the plates.   After printing a number of lithographs from one plate, I can then experiment with a host of possibilities. Using the litho plate as a “matrix”, I experiment with a number of monotype techniques. These are then designated as “varied editions”.  
It is exciting to see each print introducing a different mood or feeling from the same matrix.  The following three prints are from the same matrix.
