The inspiration for this piece comes from Gibside National Trust property in Northumberland. The (very rich) family built a Palladian Chapel at the end of a very long grassy tree-lined avenue where the owner raced his horses! I solved the problem of the diminishing perspective by flattening out the trees and showing more than one viewpoint. This gives it a decorative, almost Indian style.
This etching was created on a copper plate - tiny grooves and pits were made using a variety of resists and ferric chloride. The plate is inked up in 12 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!) The plate is inked and printed by hand for every print in the edition.
