Le chat (6.75 x 5 inches /17 x 13 cm), a dry point intaglio print on plexiglas (Plaskolite 050) plate.
Using traditional dry point needles, nails and roulette, I drew the image freely, without the use of a preliminary sketch, somewhat inspired by a small monotype that I did a while back, and my cat. I printed on 11 x 7.5 inches/28 x 19 cm paper, which was wet beforehand. All inks used are oil based etching inks.
A first print was pulled with dry point inking only, and subsequent variant monotype prints were pulled with à la poupée colour inking and wiping.
Dry point only with black ink on BFK paper.
Also, as with all dry points, with each additional inking and pull of the print, the burr of the dry point wears off, and there is less intensity in the black dry point lines.
These prints were all printed in my studio on my new Richeson Baby Press.
