The Diver has surfaced. She riding along the beach!

Aquatint etching on white BFK Rives paper; print size 9 1/2 x 8 1/4 " ( 24 x 21 cm ); hand printed by me on my own etching press; signed and titled by me.

PLEASE NOTE: This is an artist's proof, printed during the creation of this etching. It is signed by me and marked 3rd state, a.p.' (artist's proof). I drew in pencil on top of the print, indicating where I wanted to enhance the image before printing the fourth state.
There are also some pencil marks along the border of the print which have been erased and are hardly visible (I tried to scan them but they were too faint for my scanner).

Six or seven states were printed before this image was finished. The final state of 'Diver' is also for sale in this shop.

'Diver' has been published in my book of etchings and stories 'Looking for Snails on a Sunday Afternoon', available here (please see the listing under 'Books, Book Illustrations').

(The colour picture is a detail of a painting of mine of the same motif.)

For more information on the time-honoured art of etching please see my 'profile'.
