Watercolor Monotype of Aphrodite Removing a Thorn from her Foot (after a Greek statue c. 300 BCE)

This very small image is one of my favorite
things. It is a watercolor monotype.
There are several ways of making these. This
one was made by taking a piece of frosted Mylar,
and adhering it with some Studio-Tac to a thin
acetate printing plate.
Then I created the image with a combination of
water-soluble Caran d'Ache crayons, and Prang
Notice that there is a red line drawn around the
image. This is to create a barrier that will keep
any paint from oozing out into the margins
of the printing paper and spoiling the image.
This image is just about 10% larger than it
is in real life.

Thanks for visiting today.
