The following are my most recent etchings. Printed over the last 3-4 weeks they are landscapes inspired by a recent visit to Kangaroo Island. My wife and I stayed in a holiday house at Emu Bay and these are based on sketches and drawings I did while there. The bay is quite large and has a wonderful beach leading up to vegetation covered sand hills. A walk from our holiday house around to near the point on the other side of the bay took around 2 hours.
This is a dry point etching using a perspex plate. The water was printed from one plate using a mono print technique and the land printed on top using a traditional intaglio process. The image is 27cms x 4cms and was handiprinted in a limited edition of three on acid free Canson paper.
As the title suggests this image is at the western end of the small township at Emu Bay. This is a hard ground and aquatint etching from a copper plate. The image is 6.5cms x 11cms hand printed n a limited edition of Five on acid free Canson Paper.
Emu Bay Rocks is a hard ground etching with aquatint etched on a copper plate. At one point the sand hills meet the beach a some outcrops of rocks which were weathered into interesting shapes that contrasted with the vegetation on the sand hills. I liked the way they jutted out onto the beach interrupting the flow of the curve of the bay. This image is 15cms x 7cms hand printed in a limited edition of five on acid free Canson paper.
