is rust a must?

Rust prints moving forward...

These small plates also start to explore essential marks in my larger prints.

The print, below, is done on paper which was pressed against a strong fresh rust stain - rust as monoprint? I like the subtle transfer of colour.

These two final images show rust on the more complex print - the control of the rust marks needs to be carefully done - it just doesn't work as well if its too random.

OOh ... what interesting things have been going on in my prolonged absence! I especially like your use of rust on your two small more abstract pieces. To me, the second one down is particularly satisfying.
