The old town of Rye on the South-East coast of England is world-renowned. I fell in love with its fairy-tale charm some 20 years ago and still have to pinch myself in disbelief that I've been lucky to live here ever since. Here is a Rye town view from the bridge across river Rother. The fishing boats and the Rye skyline are the iconic visuals of my cosy little hometown.
Mezzotint is one of the intaglio printmaking techniques. It is similar to drypoint. The significant advantage of the mezzotint method is its capacity to achieve tonal variations, which no other printmaking technique has. Because of the fine grain, mezzotint is a very difficult technique, each print taking a long time to create and print.
