Original Etching - Budgies I

$164.00

Two little budgies that I met at my friend Tanya's house. 

Tanya rescues birds and has a wonderful big aviary (that I once accidentally got locked into, but that's another story) full of beautiful birds who have been given a second chance. 

This original print is a three plate drypoint etching. Each plate has been inked up in a different colour and printed on top of each other through my printing press. You can see videos of the process in my Instagram or Tiktok feeds under the name BridgetFarmerPrintmaker or click this link - https://www.instagram.com/p/C1K4bHIByyF/

I also have a fainter edition of this image as after I pulled this print I then took a 'ghost print' from the plate. A ghost print is when a second print is taken from the plate without it being inked up again. I don't normally make ghost prints as they are normally too faint, but this piece is so brightly coloured that a ghost print was achievable. Please see the listing 'Budgies II' for the ghost print edition. This listing is for the regular pulling of the print.
