Description

Original Color Monotype Portrait Man on the Beach Art Jantzen Topper Belinda Del Pesco

Title: Jantzen Topper

Medium: Hand pulled 8.25 x 7.25 inch Dark Field Monotype with Watercolor & Colored Pencil

Support: Arches Cover Printmaking paper

Process: Monotypes are made by painting on a smooth (not etched) plate, and pressing the still-wet pigments against paper to create a single, non-repeatable print of the image. For this piece, I used black, oil based etching ink on a plexiglass. The ink was rolled onto the plate with a brayer, and the portrait was lifted out of the wet ink in a subtractive process with my finger tips, points and rags, etc. and then pressed to soaked & blotted paper on a hand cranked press. After the ink was dry on the monotype, I added watercolor and colored pencil (see some of the process shots in the listing).

Edition: This is an edition of 1 (one).

Frame: The art is offered here unframed. If you'd like it framed, please contact me for an estimate.

Story: The image was based on photos of my grandfather at a beach in Rhode Island in the early 1930's in a Jantzen Topper bathing suit
