Rouge Nocturne

Rouge Nocturne
Drypoint on BFK Rives Paper,  2011, 3x4" on 7x5" Paper" 
Edition of 10 and 3 Artists proofs
Today's artwork is a drypoint print of the old River Rouge power plant near Zug Island in the Detroit River.  This drypoint print is #1/10 from a copper plate and Faust warm black ink on Rives paper hand pulled by me. Each print is slightly different, this is  the actual image and has a nice rich plate tone. This beautiful building is no longer standing in this form.

I love this. I've said it before, but I really like your Detroit drypoints. It's one of the more striking ways to represent the Detroit landscape.
