This Monoprint illustrates the elegant form and intricate composition of Green alkanet in a sophisticated manner, utilising a dark grey ink. It boasts the ghost print technique, where the leftover ink on the plate is utilised. The unique Monoprint is hand-printed onto luxurious Fabriano paper. This is my initial foray into Green alkanet printing, and it is a truly stunning plant.

  • Green alkanet, Pentaglottis sempervirens.
  • A4 original piece, handprinted.
  • Fabriano Rosaspina, 285 gsm. 60% cotton. 6x9 inch plate size
  • Dark Grey with blue undertone ink, soy based. 

The Green alkanet, found growing in damp and shaded conditions, have small blue flowers. 

This monoprinting technique uses plants pressed for weeks to create unique pieces. The plant is inked and pressed onto paper with an etching press for detailed results. 

This process allows me to slow down, by going on regular foraging walks I can connect with my surroundings. I hope this piece allows you to feel closer to nature and appreciate the smaller details within the world of botany.  

Your print will come with a biodegradable sleeve, backing board and a thoughtful thank you note, all carefully packaged in tissue paper and wrapping paper to ensure its safe arrival.
