Magpie At Dusk - Original Etching
This piece was inspired by a photo I took while leaving the Central Victorian town of Clunes at the end of the booktown festival. The sun was setting and I was on the road home after a long weekend of meeting interesting people and selling my wares. I pulled over to the side of the road to take a few photos, making the most of the 'golden hour' and there was the magpie, sitting silently on the fence post. Years later I decided to try and capture the atmosphere of that photo in an etching and this is the result.
I scratched the image into the copper plate, inked it up and printed it with damp paper through my printing press. The plate has to be re-inked for each print in the edition.
This etching is sold unframed and unmatted. Please note, the edition number you will receive will not necessarily be the one pictured.
