The Bike (new version)

This is a time of Works in progress.

I’m back to school, at the prestigious “Il Bisonte”, in Florence.

And I’m experimenting..

The Bike 150x200mm

Etching, aquatint, craquele and spit bite on zinc.

It’s dark, far darker than expected.

More work to do, in order to obtain the desired effect.


I have dimmed the lower part of the plate by fading the spit-bite and aquatint.

This was achieved by the use of the burnisher, sandpaper (800+1000), and, finally, Oxo.
