Original Etching with aquatint by Carl March.
One plate, one coloured ink and watercolour tinting.
Printed and painted on Banks cream paper.
Image size 7.0 x 3.0 cm.
Approximate paper size 20.0 x 15.0 cm.
Edition size 25 plus 10 artists proofs.
Each print individually hand made by myself, then numbered and signed.
Appealing stylised study of a girl turning to look at her viewer.
Sketched directly onto a prepared copper plate with a dry-point needle. Then acid etched using traditional intaglio techniques.
Attracted to the balanced composition of the model's face resting on her shoulder.
Simple marks help illustrate her elegant features and sensitive gaze.
Very pleased with the finished image showing the delicately aquatinted lines.
