Black callan Cloud

Black Callan Cloud 2009. 23 cm x 18 cm .Single-block print .

This was the first print to which I applied my new scratch'bite technique , a method of producing fine or graded tones other than by cutting fine lines.

I enjoy fine-line work , and of course  it's part of the whole trade-engraving tradition , which reached such astonishing standardsin the 19th Century ..  But I like the idea of attacking the block with other weapons !
