I call this Gala. If you don't know a monotype is painted directly onto Plexiglas- then wet paper is laid on top and it is rolled through a press. This typically yields only one copy thus 'mono-type'. If you already knew that sorry to bore you with the details. Oh yea, the final print is the reverse of how it is painted.

I was trying to get a feel of movement- like an old time street dance or party but I forgot that it would print backwards- so I am not quite sure about it.
Any and all comments are welcome Wink

I think this is great, it reminds me a little of Seurat, a little of Renoir, definitely a late victorian/edwardian feel to the party... Cheesy

What inks were you using?

Thank you purevitality!
Thanks to you too PlumCrafty- that is a wonderful compliment- I truly love Seurat and  Renoir (Monet too)

I actually used opaque gouache with a very limited palette
 I have done this with watercolor also (full strength right out of the tube)- but the colors are not as vibrant.

I know what you mean, I had a deep blue that came out rather "earthy" looking. Isn't there a glazing or pearlescent medium that you can use to give them a bit of a kick (I know there is for acrylics but not sure about inks)?

I am not sure either- I am only familiar with the ink used in pens Smiley
I Used gouache which I think is closer to acrylic than to ink...
