Goats are amazing creatures, imagine being able to eat a thistle!
WHAT IS AN ETCHING?: This is a handprinted etching, each print is inked up by me, the artist. I use copper plates, and first do a line etching that I then add aquatint to, this is a etching process, that involves rosin and heating the copperplate, you then "stop out" in reverse, with light tones first right down to rich dark tones, creating quite color dense areas. As the copper plate is inked up for each and every print, it does mean that some differences can occur from print to print, I hope you treasure this as part of the hand printed traditional technique that etching is.
If you would like to see me make and print an etching, have a look in the "me at work" section
