Etchings and Aquatints
I am a member of 12 Printmakers (12PM). My printmaking is an extension of my preoccupation with landscape.
I am finding the discipline which the etching process imposes is very good for me. It forces consideration of a range of single tones in stages, which helps unitfy the image. I like the similarity to tonal drawing, but I also like colour and am finding ways to incorporate it on a single plate. I am experimenting with combining drypoint and monoprint on two separate plates to add colour tone without losing the quality of the drypoint line.
