This etching has the title "Jeg svever", in Norwegian.. That means " I am flying", in English.

I have three images from the same copperplate, as you can see. Green , red, blue and colorful image.

This etching is an original etching. That means that I ink up the copperplate for each print pulled, so each print will have small differences to the next.

I start by drawing the image, through a varnish, onto a copper plate. Then I immerse the copper plate in acid, and the acid "bites" into the copper where I have removed the varnish. When the plate is done, and this takes a while, as most copper plates go in the acid several times. So it takes a couple of days to create one image.

Each print will be unique and a piece of art. The plate is inked by hand, and I use a lot of colors in one print. I use my etching press for printing on to special printing paper using lightfast inks.

I often use the aquatint technique to create the deep tones and structure.

This print is printed in an edition of only 60 prints. Each etching is printed in a limited edition, so the number of the print, for example 5/60,  tells you this is the fifth print of an edition of 60 prints.

Please be aware that I can't guarantee that you get the number on the photo!

Each print comes unmounted and will be shipped in an envelope, with a hard board, to protect it.
