An etching of wave breakers, or sea soldiers as I call them, standing tall and casting their shadow on the beach. Protecting the land from the power of the sea.

The etching has been made on a copper plate as a mirror image and printed by means of an etching press using a process that has changed little since Rembrandt’s day 400 years ago. It has also been treated with an aquatint giving the sky and sea that special quality. Every etching is inked by hand and is thus an unique and original artwork.

It has been printed on Somerset Velvet handmade paper from St Cuthbert’s Mill in the UK using high quality professional etching ink. The paper has a soft cream colour.

The etching measures 9 x 6 cm (3.5” x 2.4”) and comes with a mat (mount) that's the same colour as the paper measuring 13 x 18 cm (5" x 7").

It has an edition of 45 and is signed and numbered. A leaflet will also be enclosed explaining how the etching was made.
