'Country road', monotype, 2023, 25cm x 37.5cm, etching ink on Stonehenge paper.
I went for a walk along this beautiful stretch of road whilst on holiday in Port Macquarie. It's taken me a year or two to get around to putting something on paper. This print marks a little divergence for me. Instead of my usual soy-based variety, I used some of the oil-based etching ink I've had sitting in the cupboard for over 20 years! It presented new challenges - especially when the paper stuck to the plate, as you can see from this time-lapse video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYl4QnpOWPI
