mezzotint wing by SwarzezTier mezzotint wing by SwarzezTier
printed after engraving in a copper plate
mezzotint background, made in seven hours on several days with a mezzotint rocker (really not good for your wrist ;-) )
wing itself is engraved with a polishing needle for the white parts and a dry point needle for the dark parts - took me again many hours
So - finally done!
And love how it tourned out - i will test it on another a bit softer and more white paper and print it a hand full of times.
But much work.
Size of the print copper plate is 19 cm x 13 cm - size of the paper is 45 cm x 30 cm (took a close up here).
Much more soft and beautifull in original this print :-)
Done while having a close look to a real wing.

Two other versions of this plate:
blue wing by SwarzezTier soft mezzotint wing by SwarzezTier

If you look for to by such one, i maybe sell four of these.
