Artist's description:

This is an etching and aquatint printed on wonderful somerset cream paper. It is from a very rare artist's proof edition of 2. (An artist's proof can be defined both as a print taken during progress of the work for the artist's benefit and it can often be a small edition of the work the artist has kept aside as his/her best versions of the print).

The artwork combines very fine crosshatching, from the initial line etching, with the rich, velvety tonal work of the aquatint. The work has a surreal and mysterious feel to it. The main subject matter of the tents are defined by well-bitten, thick black lines which contrast beautifully against the finer crosshatch shading and other line work.

This is an original etching and aquatint print pulled from a zinc plate.

Your print will come wrapped in protective tissue paper to reach you in the best condition.

If you have any questions relating to the work before purchase please don't hesitate to ask me.
