Black Framed Black & White Ocean Quadruptic
The etchings are Aquatint, Aquaforte and sugar lift, on copperplates, printed on Rives BFK heavyweight acid free Cotton paper.
This is a two plate etching.
I love the contrast of the two different black tones between the printed boarder and the inserted Kelp Forest Animal. The boarder plate is inked and printed in a silver black with a tint of midnight blue and symbolizes the movement of the ocean waves.
The Kelp Forest animals inside is printed with a sepia & Burnt Siena color mixed into the silver black.This gives the images a nice contrast and richnes.
The images are off :
A Kelp Crab
A Sea urchin
A Bat Starfish
A Turban Snail
The Image size is 8x10 and I have a couple framed and matted images available.
