This Bleeding Heart image is inspired and drawn from flowers in my own garden. My garden is often my inspiration and I love representing it with classic drypoint intaglio prints. These make perfect, affordable gifts for any art lover in your life!
This image was scratched directly into an acrylic plexiglass plate using an Etching needle. The plate was then inked, the excess ink wiped away, and the remaining ink in the grooves of the image was printed onto the paper when it went through an etching press. It is printed with a hand-mixed black/blue oil-based ink on Fabriano Rosapina Archival Printmaking Paper.
This is a varied limited edition of 12 prints. Each print is signed and numbered.
This listing is for print #1 of 12.
This edition was printed in 3 different ink colour variations. Four prints of each.
This listing is for the unframed print.
The image is 5 inches wide.
These prints are presented in a plastic sleeve with a board backing. A small write up on my printing process is also included. Prints are shipped out in a protective envelope to ensure they reach you safely.
