Nocturne: Piscataqua - Etching with Aquatint- 2007 - 11" x 14 "

 

This plate was initially drawn outside in a driving snowstorm, which began to cause the breakdown of the hard ground, and forced me to give up drawing after a much shorter time than I would have liked. A significant amount of in-studio invention led to this finished image, which bears little resemblance to my original idea, probably for the better. I was looking at a lot of Joseph Pennell etchings around this time.
