This drypoint print of a Goldfinch is hand printed with etching ink on Somerset cotton rag paper. This is part of an ongoing study of the ecology of Devon Hedgerows. Goldfinches like anywhere there are bushes and trees and like seeds from thistles and teasels that might be inaccessible to other birds. In winter many UK goldfinches migrate as far south as Spain, it will be nice to see how far my Goldfinch print might travel!

This Goldfinch print is printed as a very limited edition of just 6 prints – each print is individually inked, wiped and printed with an etching press. I’ve used a green-blue/dark teal ink mixture.
This is number 3 of 6 listed for sale on Etsy. The print is signed, titled and numbered 4/6 in pencil.

Image = 12.5cm x 7.3cm; 4 ¾ x 2 7/8 inches
Paper size = 19cm x 14cm; approx 7 ½ x 5 ½ inches

This artwork was conceived and created solely as an original fine art print. Unlike a gicleé print or any other computer print out, none of my prints are reproductions of a pre-existing painting or drawing.

I like to use top quality heavy weight paper this one is Somerset 100% cotton, Velvet, 300gm so It is best not to roll up prints for posting, especially when the printing process results in a fair amount of embossing. I will therefore only ship my prints flat and protected with card.

Eco tip for printmakers - Clean up oil based ink with vegetable oil. Better for your health as well as the environment.
