Imagine, your own orchard, pomegranates, lemons, apples, pears and oranges... sweet luscious fruit!
WHAT IS AN ETCHING?: these are aquatint etchings, handprinted by me, the artist, with the best etching inks and on a really beautiful piece of creamy printmaking paper. An etching is a handmade print, from a copperplate made by the artist, to the inking up by the artist, inking has to be done for each and every print, every step of the process involves the artist, which is why etchings are known as Original Prints. If you would like to see a film with me making and printing an etching, go to www.youtube.com and search under my name, or to the "me at work" section here in my shop.
SIZE: This etching is made up out of 6 different copperplates, all inked up individually before being assembled and printed together, the measurement for the image, are all the plates together.
The beautiful velvety printmaking paper measures 20" x 10" (50cm x 25 cm)
and the copperplates, the actual images, together, measure 7" x 15", (17 cm x 38 cm)
EDITION: I sign, title and number each print.
This etching is printed in a limited edition of 40 prints, this means that once the edition is finished, I scratch the copperplates, ensuring that they can't be printed from again.
Please be aware I can't guarantee you get the number in the photo.
SHIPPING: I mail your etching protected by tissue paper and cellophane in a tube so it arrives safely, it comes with a nice flier explaining what an etching is, and I am very happy to gift wrap.
