Artwork description:

There's nothing better than an early morning outdoor swim! Inspired by sketches of the Parliament Hill Lido in North London.

This is a drypoint, a form of etching where the image is created by scratching directly onto the plate. Since no acid is needed, the metal isn't dissolved as on an etched plate, but is thrown up on each side of the line, creating a thicker, soft line. This wears down with each successive print, hence the small edition of 10 prints.

I've left ink or polished it off in areas to create the tone - this is the painterly mono printing part of the process. I've also added a little watercolour. Each handcrafted print is unique and variable and numbered E.V (Edition Variable)

Size: 16 x 16cm including the border. The actual image is 10 x 10cm

Orders are wrapped in acid-free tissue, flat-packed between two layers of board in a stiffened envelope and dispatched signed and tracked within four days.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to send a message!

Materials used:

Somerset Satin paper 300g, Intaglio printing inks, perspex plate, etching press, watercolours
