Andrea Leland's Fish Forest, contemporary, abstract, original monoprint with pen and ink. The image size is 12 inches by 9 inches and the framed size is 20 inches by 16 inches. Framed in white mat and frame.
About Fish Forest, Andrea says: I have fun making these prints. This medium is a way for me to play with color, texture and stencils with unexpected results. I mix the water based inks, paint the Plexiglas tablet and build up the layers of inked stencils. To create the print, I take this tablet, with damp paper on top, and run both through a press. Once finished with the printmaking process, I take the prints into my Petaluma studio and embellish the images with mark making, inks, oil and chalk pastels.
In this monoprint I was using a variation of yellow and pink with the addition of a green landscape. The blue highlights compliment the composition and add balance.
