Life can be a bitch but dogs make us smile... A handmade colour etching and aquatint hand-finished with watercolour. The artist has redrawn her original sketch onto a grounded zinc plate before placing it in acid which 'bites' the exposed line forming deep grooves to hold ink. The plate is inked and pulled through the etching press for every print in the limited edition, meaning each one is in effect unique! Materials: Intaglio etching inks, Somerset Satin paper 300gsm, etching press.

Rebecca Denton, painter and printmaker, has original artworks for sale with Wychwood Art in their art gallery and online. With over two decades of creating, Rebecca Denton works from her sketches and imagination to create original prints in her North London studio. Her aquatints are often whimsical, featuring imagined characters in imaginary landscapes and her narrative etchings are playful, sometimes with a serious context but always hopeful and life-affirming. I love it when people connect with the work; perhaps it triggers a childhood memory or allows them to dream of a better world or just dream... Rebecca also creates unique one-off prints; moments of beauty where the soul of the place can be felt.
