This is my most complex patchwork landscape etching to date. There's a lot of detail including a viaduct and a tractor. It's not of a particular place but the hills and fields are reminiscent of Northumberland and the Yorkshire Dales. The distant hill could be Whernside or Pen-y-ghent in the Dales. The white cottage provides a strong focus to the composition.
This etching was created on two copper plates - tiny grooves and pits were made on each using a variety of resists and ferric chloride. Both plates are inked up in several colours then wiped back carefully before being printed onto damp paper on a traditional etching press (a bit like a mangle if you can remember mangles!) One plate is printed then removed and the second plate is printed on the paper over the top of the first. The plates are inked and printed by hand for every print in the edition.
