"Morning Moon" is part of the series: "Trees for Peace." It is one of three images for an exhibit with the theme of peace and the environment. This image silhouettes trees in their skeleton state. They provide restful shapes as well as helping the earth to remain stabilized during winter storms.
"Morning Moon" is a watercolor monotype based on a morning event. It was then translated to art by painting, wiping, spraying and painting again onto a plate before the image was hand pressed to damp printmaking paper.
Thie is a watercolor monotype where the tree was pressed from an arbovitae shrub as the plate was printed onto damp paper.
This image is a watercolor monotype. It was created by painting with watercolor on a frosted plate. The image is then transferred to damp paper using either a hand device or an etching press. This image was made by rubbing with a wooden spoon.
