Fisher Bldg Nocturne


Fisher Bldg Nocturne, 5/15
Mezzotint on  Rives lightweight Paper,  2011, 4x3" on 7x5" Paper" 
Edition of 15 and 3 Artists proofs
A mezzotint print of the Fisher Bldg at night.  This mezzotint print is #5/15 from a copper plate and Faust jet black ink on Rives paper hand pulled by me. The plate is my first mezzotint and was hand rocked and printed by me in the studio. A very laborious but rewarding process.

Beautiful, Steve. I did a few mezzotints back in the 80's. I also rocked my own plates; we all thought buying a machine-made plate was cheating!

Thanks Patrick,
I would like to see them if you still have any.
I guess I am in my second childhood, doing all the things I want to do, I didn't go to art school so am still experimenting and having fun. LOVE the press.
