Black & White Line Etching & Aquatint

1/2 AP
Plate Size: 18" x 26"
Printed with a warm black ink on Rives BFK with ample borders.

This is "1/2",  the first of two proofs taken of BACK ROAD after the aquatint was added to the line etching. This print has very rich blacks. In fact, it was printing too dark for the watercolor I planned to do, to have the desired effect. So after these two proofs were taken, I did considerable burnishing on the copper plate, so that it would printer lighter in areas, allowing the watercolor to show.

think this proof stands very well on its own as a B&W intaglio print.
