Watercolor and Intaglio Etching

After the Rain was created in 1989. Inspiration was the elegant fence and beautiful homes along the main road approaching the center of Concord, MA. A small puddle remains at the edge of the road after a shower and a few colorful leaves cling to the trees. Fall is beautiful, rich with color but I also love it when the bare branches become more visible. The edition has been sold out for the past 15 years.

After the Rain was created by drawing with a needle on a copper plate coated with an acid resistant ground, thus exposing copper.  Using line etching and aquatint techniques, the copper plate is etched with acid. After hand inking and wiping, an etching press is used to emboss the image into a sheet of damp paper. Every print of After the Rain is individually inked, printed, and when dry, hand painted with watercolor.
