Pines of Pan, Intaglio and Relief
20.5 x 18
“Pines of Pan” was made in 2010
This image is based on a pen and ink drawing done in Greece. To translate the image into a print, I began with a marker drawing on copper. The plate was etched for about eight hours to create a relief contour. Part way through the etching process, I surface rolled the plate with oil based ink to reinforce the marker and to give some tonal texture.
Printed with Akua Inks, the blue was wiped intaglio below the surface, and the ochre was surface rolled.
