"Sitting Buddha"

Here's my latest etching. It was created on a zinc plate.
First I created colored monotype backgrounds, then ran the etching over top.
He is inspired from the Great Buddha statue in Kamakura, Japan.
He is 13 meters tall and weighs 93 tons.
I'd love to see it in person someday!

Black and White Monotypes

Here are some monotypes I made last night.
The red tint resulted from leftover ink that someone must have used on the materials previously.
It was unexpected, but I liked the way it came out.
