Ring-Necked Parakeets with Hand Embellishment
This highly intelligent creature is on the hunt for a crab supper. A master of disguise, he is able to change his colour according to his mood. I think I was channelling him, when I created this etched piece in three different finishes. "Solitary Octopus" is available in full colour, black, and blue.
This is "Solitary Octopus" in full colour.
How it's made
When creating etched pieces, I sketch my design onto paper and then place it underneath a sheet of clear plastic. Using a Dremel tool, I scratch the image into the plastic before inking up the plate. Once the whole image is covered, I remove the ink using a scrim, leaving enough in the grooves of the design to achieve a quality line when it is printed.
Once the print has gone through the press and is dry, I use watercolour and metallic paints to emphasise the ethereal quality of the prints.
This is a limited edition print of an original etching artwork, created on acid free, archival quality paper. Every print comes with a signed certificate of authenticity and you will own one of a run of only one hundred prints.
For straightforward ordering and ease of framing, my prints are available in standard paper sizes. Size options for each print can be viewed from the drop down menu.
Additional sizing information:
As the original artworks from which the prints are taken were not always created on standard sized paper, some prints do not transfer exactly onto standard paper dimensions. Your chosen image will be printed onto your choice of standard paper size and then expertly trimmed, so there is a neat 2” white border around the edge.
Your finished print may therefore be a standard paper measurement in one dimension and slightly shorter in the other. For example, if you choose an A4 print of an image that is narrow in width and long in height, your finished print will be standard A4 size in length (including the 2” margin”), but slightly shorter than standard A4 size in width (including the 2” margin).
If you have a particular frame in mind for your print and therefore need your print to be a bespoke size, please get in touch before you place your order so we can discuss your requirements.
All Jenny Evans Artwork prints come unmounted.
However if you would like your print professionally mounted and framed in your choice of frame colour, get in touch.
Please also contact me if you are planning on hanging your print under a spotlight, or in direct sunlight, as it is also possible to have your print framed with UV glass that stops reflections and will prevent your print from fading in sunlight.
