A tiny Blue Tit, perched among the flowering willows. Small, multi-plate etching, 10cmx7cm approx, signed limited edition print, one of a limited edition of 50.
It is printed on 280g white acid-free Rives printing paper using high quality etching inks in x colour. The paper is a subtle shade of off-white.

An etching is made by taking a piece of metal (zinc in this case), and effectively drawing and painting on the surface using acid to make an image that looks like a painting. The finished plate can then be carefully wiped with thick etching ink to make a limited number of copies. All stages are painstaking and time-consuming, and each individual print is carefully hand-wiped so that each one has a character of it's own unlike a cheap giclée where every one is exactly the same.

This print is hand-pulled and made from an original metal plate that can only produce a limited number of impressions. If you look closely at it, you can see the texture of the individual feathers impressed in the thick paper. Unlike a giclée, the colour is made from completely natural inks (linseed oil, pigment) that will last forever.

Sent out wrapped in cellophane between thick pieces of card to keep this precious little one safe.

What a beautiful print; you can’t mistake the eyes of a deerhound puppy. I rushed to have this framed immediately upon receipt. Shipped flawlessly and without any trouble from GB to Seattle. The artist also included a very thoughtful and kind gift, which I was both delighted and grateful to receive. Don’t hesitate to buy as her prints are gems. Thank you!

Elegant, subtle, detailed, beautiful print. This shipped very quickly, especially for international mail. It was very well packed/protected. Artist/vendor provided extra shipping notification and international tracking number - very helpful. Thank you!

Thank you Elizabeth for this fabulous print of your own elderly cat. It's difficult to describe my emotions after seeing it in the flesh (well,sort of) & not just a photo on my iPhone screen. You've caught this cats pleasure, eyes closed in relaxation & it was as if I was looking at one of my beloved cats - the similarities are strikingly close! I'd been anticipating it's arrival because seeing the real thing is the only way to design the framing. I was not disappointed &, instantly upon opening the parcel I knew what I'd do. I plan to add a photo when it's back from the frame shop. It's simply tops!
