Artwork description:

Just the perfect spot for a blanket, so tranquil, peace and beauty all around!

a handprinted aquatint etching; this means that I have drawn the image, through a varnish, onto a copper plate, I then immerse the copper plate in acid, and the acid "bites" into the copper where I have removed the varnish. When the plate is done, and this takes a while, as most copper plates go in the acid several times, with me adding more detail and aquatint (gives dark tones) I ink the copper plate up for each print I make, you can only print once per inking. Once the ink and paper has dried I sign, title and number each print. As etchings are real hands on printmaking, printmaker are allowed to call their prints original prints, and etchings are very collectible. A great way to start an art collection!

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.
Find my printmaking movies in the “me at work” section, you can see me make and print an etching.

I print "Tranquil" in a short edition of only 60 prints, each print is numbered and signed by me. Please note you might not receive the number in the photograph.

The etching is printed on a piece of warm white heavy printmaking paper, perfect for the image,
the paper measures 9 x 12" (23 x 30 cm)
and the actual images measures 6" x 9" (16 cm x 23 cm)

I'll mail your etching carefully wrapped from my studio in Denmark, see my over 860 reviews that I do a good job :o))
