Original dry-point engraving with aquatint by Carl March.
One plate, one coloured ink and watercolour tinting.
Printed and painted on Banks cream paper.
Image size 19.5 x 13.5 cm.
Approximate paper size 33.0 x 26.0 cm.
Edition size 25 plus 10 artists proofs.
Each print individually hand made by myself, then numbered and signed.
Elegant stylised study of a girl lying on her beach towel.
Sketched directly onto a copper plate with a pencil, followed by traditional engraving and etching techniques.
Attracted to the composition of looking down upon the relaxing figure.
Unusual view point with the model's head at the base of the image. A recurring pose in my work.
Especially pleased with the finished print showing the engraved lines on her hair and the tassels of the towel.
