Fruit trees, laden with gifts, edible, beautiful, fruit of knowledge.
this is a handprinted aquatint etching ; I ink up the copperplate for each print pulled.
I use first class papers and ink to give my work the best possible longevity.
Aquatint is a technique where deep tones can be achieved on an etching, it involves rosin, that gets melted onto the copperplate with the help of a burner.
If you would like to see me make and print an etching, go to
www.youtube.com and search under my name to see my printmaking movies, you can also have a look in the "me at work" section!.
"Forbidden Fruit" is printed in an edition of only 75 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.
"Forbidden Fruit" is printed on a piece of warm white heavy printmaking paper,
perfect for the image,
the paper measures 8.5" x 17" (22cm x 42cm)
and the actual copper plate where the image is etched, is 6.5" x 14" (17 x 36 cm)
I'll mail your etching from my studio in Denmark, safely packaged. If you are giving the etching away as a gift, let me know and I'll happily gift wrap.
