This monotype is one-of-a-kind prints.

Paller applies ink with a roller (brayer) to a large copper sheet (plate), drawing his shapes.

Again, this picture is largely about the nestling of organic forms. The soft areas are what is referred to as “ghost ink” - lighter, transparent grainy surfaces using the qualities of the ink remaining after the previous print was made.

The richness of the oil-based inks provides a luminous quality that other media cannot.
