Mono Prints with Honesty Seed Heads

I’m loving the warm weather, being able to be in my studio with the doors open. Here are some more mono prints I’ve done using my gellatine plate.

I used honesty seed heads freshly picked from the garden, they have not become brittle and so are more durable.Plant plate
I do love printing, you never know what’s going to happen, each one is a surprise reveal. Plant 5 Plant 6 Plant 7I’m very pleased with these prints and I think the colours and textures are great! 🙂
