After lots of cutting …

   
   
This print is just a little bit bigger than A3 so there has been lots of cutting. So many stones! I have to say though that I am very pleased with this first proof. A small amount of tweeting and it’ll be ready to edition. 

I’ve used caustic soda to create the hills surrounding Mupe Bay and it’s certainly achieved a great tonal effect. 

The colour is spot on too. This is Ocean Blue by Intaglio Printmakers and it’s such a rich blue. 

I hope this print makes you think of faraway places that have wonderful history underneath the layers of soil that we walk on. Of times gone by when other creatures roamed the world. Of wonder.
