ABOUT THIS PRINT
Kristina was a lovely model whom I worked with on a number of paintings and drawings. This image is based on a life study in watercolour. Making an etching print based on the study, I tried to simplify the figure as much as possible and make it all about the colours.
Etching is an intaglio printmaking technique. It is a rather complex process, requiring many specific materials: polished metal plates, acids, acid-proof grounds etc. And of course, an old-fashioned printing press!
