Two trees – Monotype print,size:9X9,courtesy by Wendy Orville, all rights reserved by the artist
Today I want to take a little excursion into monotype printmaking. Recently I had a friendly email exchange with monotype printer Wendy Orville, who kindly notified me about her new website address so I could update a link list with my favorite monotype printmakers.
Wendy Orville has a number of beautiful tree monotype prints in her landscape portfolio. Her sensitive use of colors, masterly control of tonalities and color saturation together with strong drawing/graphic skills are impressive and make for the excellent quality of her work in my opinion. I asked for permission to display this specific piece, because I like the structures that represent the foliage in particular. There is a whole world captured in a small print in size of 9×9 inches.
I think it is worthwhile to devote some time to these beautiful monotype prints. Wendy Orville is also an experienced teacher and holds workshops at her Inkgarden studios. Thank you Wendy for the inspiration and the permission to display one of your works on this blog!
