Artwork description:

The glorious view of London from Alexandra Palace...

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.

I've left ink or polished it off in areas to create the tone - this is the painterly mono printing part of the process.

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 Velvet paper 300g, Intaglio printing inks, perspex plate, etching press
