“White Ibis”


“White Ibis”  is an Intaglio Etching framed in a 11 x 11 frame.  The image was created by drawing on 4 different copper plates with a sharp instrument.   All four plates were then placed in a pan of acid that bit the lines into the plate.  Once the etched drawing is completed, all four of the plates are inked, wiped, and printed on damp paper with an etching press for each print.  Each of the four plates has been drawn and etched according to the color of ink they will be inked in using the colors of  yellow, red, blue, and brown ink.  Each plate must be printed separately in the same exact place on the paper to end up with a four color print as you see here.   I began this print years ago but never finished it so I am currently in the process of finalizing the plates so I can print an edition.  This print is an artist proof used as I work on the plates to see what I have done, and what still needs to be done to complete it.  After drying, each print is hand signed and numbered.
