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.
