Question for the artist?

Artist's description:


The starting point for this one was a photograph I had taken and developed myself about 10 years ago -- I wanted to somehow use it again in my current printmaking practice, so decided to do a photo etching, with some line etching and aquatinted skies added on, to give it some drama. It holds nostalgia of the grey Calcutta monsoon skies, blurry with heavy rain-filled clouds, which make the birds of the city, including pigeons frantically fly about, and ultimately settle in their nests.


This is a combination of photo etching with some hand-drawn line etching and aquatint, made on a zinc plate. I have also done chine collé with very thin Nepalese paper.

Materials used:

BFK Rives paper, Nepalese paper, etching ink
