8 to 16

Painted completely within Inkscape - July, 2022

Printed on Hahnemühle German Etching paper made from cellulose material - archival standards

1 print - 29" x 17"

Starting with geometry, I've always had enjoyment from theorems and proofs.

In 8 to 16, I sketched out an 8 pointed star and then migrated to a 16 pointed shape.

The Final Print

Hahnemühle's German Etching paper is very heavy at 310 gsm - it is almost like board stock.

The weight means a lot of ink can be absorbed by the paper - producing much richer and darker colors.

The paper's texture also helps accentuate lines and textures.

The swirling lines all jump off the paper - which a photograph or a jpg can not demonstrate.
