Artist's description:

The theme of the print is tenderness and I have used semi abstract shapes to create forms that seem to 'embrace' or 'dance with' one another.

This is a multi plate edition varie aquatint etching which means that although I have used the same acid etched metal plates for making the prints, they have all been inked up using different colour combinations so each one is very much unique. In this case I have used three plates in order to obtain layered colour, although I am only using two colours. If I particularly like a colour combination I may do several of that print but as they are all hand inked and printed, each one will be slightly different. This version is edition number 3 of a limited edition of 75.

I have other colour combinations available that are not yet published on Artfinder. Please contact me if you would be interested in seeing them and I can email you images. Or if you would like a particular colour combination, I have not yet printed up all 75 of the edition and would be happy to experiment with your suggestions.
