My little owls are very mysterious, They have an intense life when it's dark. They are supposed to bring luck to the house they live in.
A handprinted aquatint etching; I ink up the zinc plate 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 papers and ink to give my work the best possible longevity.
You can of course ask me to print the owl in a color of your choosing. I would suggest black, Prussian (dark blue), sepia or Sanguine.
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 little owl 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.
The owl 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.
