This one is absolutely beautiful! The sense of light and fluid-ness to your Monotypes is wonderful... I have not been able to find a suitable water based paint for Monotype, but I defiantly think I have to try it now even though the oils eat away at the paper... Just too wonderful of an effect! Thanks!
Hmm ... I think what I love about this style of art is the way it walks the line between representation and abstraction. It's obvious that you have prodigious technical skill, but when applied through a monotype it makes it all seem so organic ... so random, as though you just threw paint at a page, swirled it around, and this happened. Anyway, I can't really explain it away, but this is just incredible.
It's an oil based medium, so as it tacks up, it provides a different reaction to manipulation. It's a matter of experimenting and allowing discoveries to occur. I can't tell you exactly how long a piece will take, needless to say that depends on so many factors.
