Hunt Slonem prepared a watercolor study that served as the principle substrate image for this specific series of seven hand painted monoprints titled Bird Wing, lettered A to G. The study was digitally captured and adjusted, after which seven archival pigment prints were printed at Arbor Oakland Group on Entrada Rag Natural 290, 100% cotton paper. The artist then hand painted each print using gouache with variations from print to print. After painting, the completed images of Bird Wing-A through E in the series were covered with clear acrylic gel medium and Diamond Dust (fine flakes of glass) was applied over the surface. This is a rare series of unique works and Hunt Slonem's first monoprints combining pigment printing, hand painting and the application of Diamond Dust.
