#'s 3 & 4 In the Souq series

#4   Hand pulled Cart   Mono type with Chine' Colle' 
#3  9 lives in the Souq  Mono type with Chine' College'
The top print is the 4th in the order of pulls and
the Cat print is the 3rd in order using the ghost from each previous print and adding more ink and textures etc.
  Just to refresh your memory on what "Mono type with Chine' College'" is... It is basically making a mono print with collage pieces except the collage pieces are actually applied at the same time as the ink onto the paper through the press process.  Once you have reached this step it is possible to add more ink but not more collage pieces because it is difficult to stick them over the ink. The collage piece sticks directly to the paper and the ink prints over that.

The show of these pieces and the rest that I am working on will be up in the BAB building in the Pop up Gallery from March 14th - 20th.

Hi Tonya, I love seeing your BAB monotypes - their great! I love these second two as well .. especially '9 lives in the Souq' - being a cat lover myself. :)

Hi Rosalie, I have been intrigued with the stray cats that are everywhere here. They are mostly very skittish and so, difficult to photograph. This one was actually posturing at another cat below and behind a trashcan.
He seemed to be saying "move along, nothing to see here, just mind your own business."

David, thank you for your kind words. Best of luck with your colorful watercolor portraits in your up coming show.
