Dreamscape #1

(C) JOHN FANSMITH

Dreamscape # 1, a hand inked and hand pulled print combines collographic and monotype techniques into a single monoprint. It seeks to create the impression that the figure is emerging from the background and heighten the visual tension of the piece. Water-based ink on 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper. Matted and framed to 20″  x 16″
