The monotype is a print transferred from the painted surface to paper. The monotype has been described as the "painterly print". In my case, pigment is applied to glass and then forced into paper with pressure. Each color and line are transferred to the paper from the glass as image parts. Since these images involve so many independent subsections transferred in stages my method results in a single print. The edition size is therefore one.
