I have no idea what he was being questioned about, the last one on the fence, but they all were asking him things? hot dogs, mussels, wind direction.... what do I know, but seagulls are just so interesting, clever and street wise! And in this case, quite plump!!
This is an aquatint etching, 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 look in the "me at work" section here in my shop!
The beautiful velvety printmaking paper measures 18" x 10.5" (46cm x 26 cm)
and the copperplate, the actual image, measures 15.5" x 7.5",(39 cm x 19 cm )
I sign, title and number each print.
This etching is printed in a limited edition of 50 prints, this means that once the edition is finished, I scratch the copperplate, ensuring that it can't be printed from again.
Please be aware I can't guarantee you get the number in the photo.
I mail your etching from my studio here in Denmark, protected by tissue paper, and cellophane it comes with a nice flier explaining what an etching is, just let me know if you want gift wrap?
