Macleod Standing Stone

This the final (?) state of the etching published a few articles ago..

I have added an aquatint to the Stone, as the craquele background was a bit too heavy.

The crosshatched pattern now blends well with the structure of the stone.

The original Macleod standing stone is an element put up  approx 3000BC on the Isle of Harris.

It overlooks the North Sea, close to the famous Scarista Beach,facing America, and is quite stunning.

(Especially for a Macleod!).


Softground, craquele, etching and aquatint on zinc.
