small hand coloured etchings - regional studies

This is another recent work which was printed from a solar plate. The image features sailboats in Thunder Bay harbour with the famous Sleeping Giant geographical outcrop visible in the distance. I created the clouds by first blocking out the paper with masking frisket and applying washes of watercolour. Each individual print has a unique sky and cloud formation.
