Blackthorn, drypoint, 16 x 16cm


This illuminated grove of blackthorn was glimpsed from the train to Stansted Airport. It was in flower with the early morning sun behind it. A drypoint is scratched into the copper with sharp tools, raising a burr of displaced metal, which gives the drypoint line its slightly furry appearance.


Etching on Hahnemuhle Natural etching paper.

Edition of 50.
