Printing Monotypes

I spent the first part of the day printing all three of the plates I had previously painted. This time around I allowed the plates to dry overnight, which seems to be the ideal amount of dry time. This allows the ink to harden just enough to print without major ink blots, while also staying tacky enough to fully activate when it comes in contact with the paper.

I was anxious to move on to horizontal compositions, but instead I elected to paint one more vertical plate yesterday, which will bring me to fourteen monotypes total.
