'Foreshore in June' 10cm x 12.5cm

Chine Colle (etching and aquatint)

Foreshore in April

Chine Colle originated in the Far East several hundred years ago and was used to enhance the surface quality of paper for printing woodcuts - one sheet of paper was added to another in the impression process.  I paste the paper to the etching and aquatint image not for the surface quality but for pictorial reasons: the subtle tones, colours, geometric and organic shapes amplify the mysterious qualities of the landscape and the randomly scattered artifacts that occur within it.
