During a two-week long print course I decided to challenge my self to do at BIG mono print. Mono prints are painted with water colour dyes, directly on to the silk screen and then printed with a clear print paste. It can only be printed once, therefore the name "mono" print. The print is based on a photo of my mother from 1969, but I have simplified it a lot so I don´t think it looks like the photo anymore. I did a number of small tests first, trying out different styles and colours. Finally I ended up with 3 large prints; a red, a blue and the yellow one you see here:

The blue and the green print are a couple of the smaller test I did, before starting the big pieces.
The final prints are approximately 140 x 100 cm, printed on cotton.
