The Long Haul
10cm x 10cm hand-pulled copper etching print, unframed.
The old couple meander along the path together. Supporting each other, as they have for many years, they are in it for the long haul.
The plate is handmade, inked up by hand using Gamblin brand etching ink and printed on Fabriano Rosaspina 280gsm paper using a traditional hand turned etching press. This print version is the second etch state for this work - First state linework, Second state aquatint.
As each print is individually inked and pulled only once by hand in my studio, the results always vary minutely and each print, whilst part of an edition set, is unique.
Image size 10 x 10cm, paper size 16.5 x 17.5cm. Limited to just 50 archival prints.
