Another etching from '04
Here I really went crazy using my fingerprints to help etch in the dark textures around the plate to form the hill the tree stands on and the strange sky without it seeming too thought out. Then i just went ocd on the tree. i really love sketching them out with their twisting gnarled branches winding and twisting their way up.
Again I used standard black printers ink with brunt umber oil paint mixed in for the pigment
