Here it comes – Printing a Drypoint

As I said in my last post, I’m moving in a new direction with my artwork. This will be the start of a series of drypoints. The image size is A2 and it printed onto full size sheet of cotton  paper.  I love the rich fury line you get with drypoint it is so tacktile, so scribble-ly so hand drawn. There is an immediacy about the process of making the plate, and I’m happy with the looseness of the image.

Here comes the Print
Here comes the Print

I’m not into extreme sport, but I do enjoy the buzz when you lift the paper off the plate and its worked just the way you wanted it to.

...and here it is
…and here it is

So as the series progresses I’ll post each piece. I think this is the start of something good 🙂
