Drypoint Bees

Drypoints are images that have been scratched into the surface of things like metal or plastic plates, and then inked up and printed using a etching press.

  

They give a lovely rich dark line and tone to the finished print , but only allow for a short edition of prints due to their fragile nature.

I have an ongoing obsession with bees , spending far to much time watching them in my garden, and the furry small nature of these girls works beautifully with the medium of drypoint.

 

Check out my Etsy shop to buy these hand made fine art prints.
