Mono-printing

Regarding a question posted, yes, I often use Quinacridone colors in order to get a rust color; I especially love Nickel Azo Gold over Payne's Grey or Turquoise and Red Iron Oxide over anything, but there's no substitute for the real thing. Washers and nails were used to create this composition. I've discovered that paper towels and muslin work best for mono-printing.

I'll be posting a few pieces in the next few days where I have relied heavily on Quinacridone colors for a rusted effect.

Quote: Thank you Sally Huss for this: Joy lasts as long as you remember that it belongs to you.

I like the added washer. They do go well with the rust.

I love, love, love this one. I love the rust, and the rusty washers. This one is right up my alley. I trust this one is going into the book? I hope so. Great work!
