This is a limited edition drypoint print.

Alison firstly cuts out the required shape from a piece of special coated board. She then uses a sharp tool to engrave the lines into the plate and in some areas removes the top coating.

To print the plate, Alison rubs oil-based ink into the plate, ensuring it penetrates into the lines. She then carefully wipes the surface of the plate with tissue paper to remove any excess ink. She then positions the plate on the bed of the etching press and places paper on top. The pressure from the press transfers the ink onto the paper.

Once the ink has dried, Alison adds watercolour and signs and editions the finished print. Please display away from direct sunlight.

Dimensions: approx.  27x30cm
