Description

My bird collection is inspired by my garden, where my studio and conservatory overlook the bird feeders. This little visitor, the Blue Tit, inspired me to create a dry point etching. He is a regular little visitor who comes to the feeders not far from my view.

Dry point etching is a technique into which you inscribe the image into a plate with a sharp tool. Once completed the plate is covered in ink, filling the image areas and lines on the plate. The ink is wiped away carefully so the ink remains in the inscribed areas only. The plate is then printed on damp paper with an etching press. With a piece of soft felt over the paper, the high pressure of the press forces the paper down into the inscribed lines, thus printing the image. This process often shows a plate mark embossed into the paper around the edges of the plate. When the image has been printed it is placed between sheets of acid free tissue, and blotting paper two or three days allowing it to dry flat.

An etching has to be inked up every time it is printed, so whilst an edition will try and create near identical prints, each print will be different. This is what is meant by the term original prints. The artist will decide on the number of editions to print from the plate then the original plate will be defaced or destroyed.

This etching was printed in a single colour of ink and hand painted in watercolour to finish the print.

  • I enjoy developing my work so that my paintings and etchings can speak to both me and to others. I am influenced by the elements of design: colour, texture, shape, line, value and direction. In 2015 I completed an advanced printmaking course, where I explored different printing techniques. I continue to explore my passion in printmaking through practice and deeper study. I exhibit and sell my work from my home studio and through the Art in the Heart gallery in Peterborough.
