Trace Monotype & Watercolor: Capistrano Mission Bell

Capistrano Mission Bell, 4.5 x 6.5 Monotype & Watercolor (sold)

This is a trace monotype of the San Juan Capistrano bell tower, from a photo taken inside the mission courtyard. The ink lines from the trace monotype are about the same value as pencil graphite, but they have a dotted quality to them from the tooth in the printmaking paper (Arches Cover), and I like the way they look around and underneath the watercolor pigments.

See you in the next post!
