This is a somewhat larger work from me. Titled because immediately after completing this I realised that Ansel Adams, whose photographs I have always loved, took a photo very similar to this a few decades ago. I was tempted to add some colour to the front trees, but the overwhelming response to people that have seen it is to leave it as is. And so I will.
Akua Intaglio inks on Strathmore 400 series printmaking paper. Hand pressed.
This is a monotype print (one only) and measures 11″x14″ on 16″x20″ paper.
For anyone not familiar with monotypes, typically a glass or plastic plate is inked up with a roller (brayer) and then the artist removes ink with fingers, brushes, cloth, ear-buds, or just about anything really. Ink can be partially or completely removed. (See second image for the work in progress.) A sheet of paper is then placed over the image and run through the press. Only one print can be made (other than a “ghost print” occasionally) and as such is a unique work of art.
The print will fit inside a standard 16″ x 20″ frame.
