Watch out everyone, the twelve dancing princesses are on the loose! They are twirling and swirling in excitement at being able to dance.

This is - I think - the largest etching I have ever undertaken. Generally I prefer to work in a quite small size, but there just wasn't room for the scope of this picture on a small plate, so I ramped it up to a bigger size. I drew the picture freehand in a hard ground on the etching plate, etched it in the acid and then applied an aquatint to the plate for shading, tone, etc.

I've printed this in a nice Van Dyke brown, on acid-free etching paper, which will not yellow or fade over time. Printed on 285 gsm2 Fabriano Rosapina.

Size of the print is 25 cm high x 28 cm long (9.8 inches x 11 inches). There is a nice generous margin of paper around the print for framing. Signed and dated.

Thank you for looking.
