Across the Valley is an etching on paper by Louise Davies. Limited edition of 75. Print Dimensions 16cm x 16cm. Paper Dimensions 32cm x 32cm. Available framed in white wooden frame with picture mount.
Across the Valley captures the view through the landscape following the river through the valley. Louise uses layered colours and etched lines to create movement and detail in her work.
Etching is a printmaking technique that uses a chemical process to produce etched lines in a metal printing plate which will hold applied ink and form an image. Like engraving, etching is an intaglio technique. Intaglio refers to all printing and printmaking techniques that involve making marks or incisions into a plate or print surface which hold the ink when ink is applied to the surface and then wiped clean.
Louise uses vivid colour as an intuitive response to landscape. Her technique involves using deep velvety tones that contrast with delicate, spontaneous etched lines. Her prints and paintings are primarily concerned with the landscape. Some are based on childhood memories, reflecting on the countryside and coast where she spent her early childhood.
