This limited edition, 8″x8″ Virginia Opossum etching, was created on a copper plate using both etching and aquatint techniques. From the first sketches through the final print, I was enthralled by this sweet, gentle creature and her babies. I spent weeks working out the design and carefully working through successive dips into the etching solution to achieve the depth and atmosphere of this sweet momma and baby nestled in the ferns.
This artwork has been lovingly hand printed and is not a digital reproduction. This is an original artwork and hand-made through every step of its creation, from drawing to etching the plate to printing by hand. Each print may vary slightly.
Materials: etching, 100 percent rag paper, RIVES BFK, Gamblin ink, matted, square, copper plate
