I see pebbles and petals. Is it a monotype? I'd love to hear about your process. A very beautiful piece!

Thank you for all the kind words! These pieces are layers of screen printed drawings - which are simply the foundation of lines. I use screen printing to overlap and replicate line drawings that I make with black ink pens. When the drawings/lines overlap, new drawings form and news spaces between the lines are created - which I fill in with color. The screen printed lines are only in black and white, but I use gouache to get the translucency and ethereal quality that gouache is so good at creating. Let me know if you have any other questions. I love to share my process! I've attached a photo of what the pieces look like once screen printed but before color.
