Watts Chapel mono prints

After taking lots of photographs of the interior and exterior of the Watts chapel and the Watts gallery, I decided to make mono print drawings from them.

The image above is of the Watts gallery building. I mostly used newsprint to print onto as it have a nice thin, delicate feel to it rather than just use cartridge paper which use a lot in my work.

Above are prints of the chapel stain glass window and a iron gate. I used cartridge paper to print the gate onto as I wanted to see how it would come out. I wanted to play around with contrast.

Above, to the left, is a print of the altar in white ink on black paper. I wanted to change the paper to see how it would come out. To the right is a print of the detail of the outside of the chapel.

I am planning on developing these prints further.
