Falling Locust Pods, botanical painting, botanical art
- Etching Ink
This botanical study was done from life and is a portrait of the pods from the locust tree in my yard. It is created with an unusual technique, with a kind of ink that is no longer available. In this method Multimedia artboard is prepared with a special ground which I etch into while wet. Then when the ground is dry I rub into the surface a water miscible printmaking ink, lifting and burnishing as one would an etching plate. The result is mysterious and old world, with a depth and luminosity that looks like the ink is still wet. The feeling I was trying to capture is that of autumn when the winds are blowing leaves to the ground and everything is in a state of transition. The visual space is ambiguous: it could be the ground or the air.
Multimedia art board is a stable very thin panel. The artwork can be traditionally matted with a bit of the edge of the painting showing, or to the edge. It can also be (carefully!) trimmed and glued to another surface to float frame as shown.
