Red Mountains
click the end of this sentence for a mandatory view of a mega-close scan
ink, markers, with water, varnish, various debris (cloth scraps, hair, etc.), scraping
the scan is better than looking at it in person ! even though you can’t tell that just the red part of the landscape is shiny, or the optical illusion of waves in her shirt, the insane level of detail makes the scan win out, I think.

 Some of the original paintings/drawings/etchings I have recently put up for sale.

Most are pre-framed, and there are more photos in their listings.

If you are seeing this, you probably follow this art tumblr- thank you so much.  I made a coupon code that goes until march, “ITWAS2013” (without quotes) for 10% off any other than the small etchings.

(If you were to reblog this post, I would really appreciate it- it’s unlikely for people to come across this blog through the tags I use, and these images individually were mostly only seen by those who already know my work)

Sophie Leetmaa on etsy, & tumblr archive.

6”x 9” print made with two plates; etching, drypoint, sugar lift, multiple aquatint attempts, golden glitter, and slight ink touch up
no signature in the image itself, so I will specify here the artist is Sophie Leetmaa.
