Artist's description:

Balboa Park in San Diego is a place of magic. The sunsets are amazing, the colours make you dream.

A handprinted aquatint etching;
This is a 2 plate etching. First I print the background and the second plate contains the palmtrees.
I ink up the 2 zinc plates for each print pulled, this means that each print will have small differences to the next.
I hope you treasure this as a sign of individuality and part of what makes an original print an original.
I use first class, heavy, papers and ink to give my work the best possible longevity.

Aquatint is a technique where deep tones can be achieved on a zinc plate etching, it involves rosin, that gets melted onto the zinc plate with the help of a burner.

Your Californian Dream is printed in an edition of only 50 prints, please be aware that I can't guarantee that you get the number on the photo......
Each print is numbered, titled and signed by me.

California Dreaming is printed on a piece of warm white heavy printmaking paper, perfect for the image, the paper measures 17.5cm x 17.5cm (7" x 7") and the actual image measures 10cm x 10cm (4" x 4")

The print is sold unframed.

I'll mail your etching in a sturdy cardboard envelope, the print is wrapped in plastic and comes with a nice leaflet explaining what an etching is.

Materials used:

zinc, printmaking paper, etching inks, rosin, acid, etching press, artists hands
