Animal Kingdom

This piece is from a series of poetry illustrations.

African motif revisited

The patterns of the mask are repeated and enlarged to create the environment. 

Dappled surfaces create subtle light

The warm orange of the flowers brings this monotype to life.

Lots of layering

There are many layers of iris and leaf images in this monotype.

Incorporating geometric shapes into the composition

Metallics were introduced into this monotype to create a reflective quality.

Focusing on texture

This monotype is full of a variety of marks and ambiguous lines to focus on the textural quality.
