Louise Almon

I have developed the technique of my multi-layered monotypes over many years. It is a technique of applying oil-based ink onto a large surface of the glass and lifting off the colour, layer by layer and allowing the colour to dry between each lift-off. Once I have a number of layers of colour, I roll black ink onto the glass and then place the layered paper face down on the black ink and draw the image that I have in mind. The drawing appears on the back of the paper and so when I “lift off” I see the result in reverse and am constantly delighted with the spontaneity of the line drawing. Each work is unique and impossible to reprint.
