"the road". Cyclist process -step 2

 

I have decide to make these pieces monoprints using a water color black ink. 

First I drew the figure onto a plexiglas plate with water color ink.

 I look at many screen shots befor I pick the images that will work the best.

I coat the plate with a light film of oil. The oil repels the water based ink which helps created the motion of the figure.

Once I am satisfied with the drawing on the plexiglass plate I press it onto a piece of water saturated paper.  

 

 

This process yields one piece- hence monoprint.

in order to create one lenticular of 3 cyclist I will make 5 drawings for each of the three cyclist.
