Botanical study is a firm-favourite subject matter for drawing and printmaking. Although a lot of my studies of tree detail (pine cones in particular) use drypoint etching techniques, I am now also starting to explore saline-sulphate etch onto aluminium plate. Here are some of my more recent drawings and etchings.
Pinus Strobus cone - saline-sulphate etch and aquatint
Larix decidua cone - drypoint etching
Malus domestica twig - drypoint etching
Tree trunk detail - pencil drawing
Dryopteris filix mas frond- saline-sulphate etch
