/River Otter, Drypoint & Monoprint
At the mouth of the River Otter, Otter Head in Budleigh Salterton, Devon, England is a favourite haunt for most locals. The pine trees cut through the horizontals in this most gorgeous of places. Budleigh Beach is steeply shelving with Atlantic rollers crashing on the rounded pebbles. Nice for a swim, but very chilly!
This print combined 2 techniques, using 2 perspex plates. I scratched into one of the perspex plates with a sharp point to create the drawing. I inked up the etched plate ran it through the intaglio press for the first impression and then inked up the 2nd plate with relief ink to give the colour and ran the print through the press again.
