Chicago artist Richard Hull was in the studio last week working on etchings and monotypes. Hull utilized traditional intaglio techniques: line etching to create densely worked areas, aquatint to add fields of tone and burnishing the plate to bring some light back in.
Hull often makes crayon drawings on paper, so we tried a related technique for the monotypes: the artist used water-soluble crayons to make a drawing on thin Sintra board which was then printed onto damp paper. The results are spectacular! Take a look at the finished prints on Richard Hull’s artist page.
