Painted completely within Inkscape - June, 2022
Printed on Hahnemühle German Etching paper made from cellulose material - archival standards
1 print - 29" x 17"
Just doodling on the computer, I created a shape.
Decided to see how this could be made into an uplifting abstraction.
This simple project took almost a month.
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.
