Etching mixed with Photo etching.
Now I am presenting a selection of various etchings and photo etchings.
Aluminium plates with green etching method is used to create these 3 prints, they are as a result of random mark making. I have used copper sulphate to etch the plates and inked them up and printed on Fabriano paper. To learn more about etching with copper sulphate click to read more.
Prints are 120mm x 120mm and if you are interested in seeing more, email me firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to send you more images.
"Above the Tree Line" is a series of etchings based on studies of alpine huts in the Alpes.
This is a series of aquatint etchings, using images that I collected in my sketch book while visiting the Aples over the last 5 years, I am fascinated by the huts that you find in the mountains. How they appear surrounded by snow, and in particular after a fresh fall of snow, very little of the hut is seen. I have etched on to copper plates which I like to use and there are great variation in the shades that you get depending on the length of time you leave it in the acid.
