Artist's description:

The title of this print is taken from the song in 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' 'Doll on a Music Box' the lyrics and tune of which have stayed with me over the years:

What do you see
You people gazing at me
You see a doll on a music box
That's wound by a key
How can you tell
I'm under a spell
I'm waiting for love's first kiss
You cannot see
How much I long to be free
Turning around on this music box
That's wound by a key
I'm turning around and around

It is made on two plates so each one requires two inkings and each print will be slightly different as it is impossible to get the backgrounds identical. It is a aquatint with soft and hard ground.

Materials used:

Somerset paper, zinc plate, lightfast printing inks

'........that's wound by a key' (2016)
