This work shows the evolution of my prints over time. All are made on copper plates with traditional intaglio techniques. I use a combination of soft ground, aquatint, drypoint, roulette, and engraving. I hand wipe my plates to better control the result of each print and to bring out the line quality of the drypoint by leaving more ink in the burr. I also will often use chiné colle to further bring out the richness of a print. My current favorite paper for chiné colle is Gampi. It has an almost iridescent quality.
