Inspired by Hokusai drawings /prints in his manga books which are printed in monochrome, I thought I'd try a monochrome grey/black colour scheme for this print. Call me strange but with my two favourite artists (Hokusai and Vincent Van Gogh) I am much more inspired by their drawings and monochrome prints even though I like the work both did in colour.
I do work with colour in my prints, especially my lino prints, but often feel uneasy about using it so I work more in monochrome and use colour only when the image really cies out for it.
