Another Watercolor Monotype Experiment

This is the plate for a monotype where I had experimented with not putting gum arabic on the plate in the area above the horse's head. Every thing else went onto a gum arabic layer on the plate. When I printed this, only the thickest paint printed on the top (uncoated) part but most of the paint didn't transfer much at all. This is how I learned that precoating the plexiglass with gum arabic is a crucial step in this process (see last post for more info). I don't have a picture of the print at the moment but I will post it when I do.

UPDATE: Here is the 1st print from this plate. As you can see, the color above the horse's head is mostly lost.

And this is the ghost print (2nd print from same plate) in which I added more color to the plate before printing it again, as well as a charcoal drawing to the print.
