Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Title: Whale and Mermaid

Medium: Hand pulled 9x7 inch Drypoint Engraving & Collagraph (see photos in this listing for process shots)

Support: Arches Cover Printmaking paper (in a variety of shades)

Process: dry point engraving is a very old printmaking process, using metal or plexiglass plates, an incising tool, ink, paper and a press. You can watch a video on the process used to create this art here: http://bit.ly/1N3y5Uz

Edition: This is a small edition of eight

Note: The color varies on the paper, as well as the background, and the whale & mermaid tints, due to each print being hand inked & hand printed, from two different plates, to achieve the full color print.

Frame: The art is offered here *unframed*. If you'd like an estimate to have it framed, be in touch.

Details: I started making this print a few weeks after traveling with friends around the Channel Islands off the coast of California, where I watched Humpback Whales diving and leaping out of the water with graceful ease. I wondered what it would be like to swim with them. :)
