More monotypes: Frog 1 and Frog 2

Last week I made several monotype prints of a frog. I inked a glass plate, placed a piece of white drawing paper on the plate, and drew a frog on the paper, pressing hard with the pencil to transfer the image from the plate. The first print had so much paint, the frog was lost in the paint (bottom image.) so I pulled another print from that plate (the ‘ghost’) which was a bit faint. I then worked on the second print today with pastel pencils to bring the frog out of his surroundings. That’s the top image below.
