Artwork description:

New moon and stars galore, the deer is just listening to the night.

This is an aquatint etching, that is, with the help of ferric Chloride acid I have incised my drawing onto a copper plate, I then add a technique called aquatint to get the different shades, this technique involves a rosin and heat, and is quite tricky to get right. When the copper plate is done, I handprint each and every print from it, apply the ink, and put it through my etching press, a very traditional hands on way of creating prints which also means that us printmakers are allowed to call them original prints.

The actual copper plate measures 9.5" x 13" ( 24 cm x 33 cm )and I have printed the image onto a beautiful heavy weight velvety piece of printmaking paperthe piece of paper measures 12.5" x 16.5" (32 cm x 42 cm )

I have signed, titled and numbered the print in a short edition of only 40 prints.
Please note you probably will not receive the number in the photo.

I ship my prints from my studio in Denmark, with many years experience of packing my prints so they arrive safely, see my over 1000 reviews.

Thanks for looking, just get in touch with questions!
