The Fish Pond






I have a small fish pond just outside my studio with a few goldfish. I often sit a watch them while I'm waiting for copper plates to etch or inks to dry. The pond is one of my meditation devices. A couple of years ago I did a series of seven etchings using the pond as the basis for the images. The prints included some sugar lift and hard ground etching as well as colour added using a mono printing technique. Even though I tried very hard to make each print in their editions as close as possible to the same this technique resulted in slightly variable editions.

The prints are all 7.5cms x 7.5cms hand printed in limited editions on acid free Stonehenge paper.


These are the seven prints in the series. I hope you find as much relaxation viewing them that I do from the real pond.
