Abstraction #9223
Abstraction #9223

copper tryptic with solvent dye over leaf etched patinas.

This is a departure from my usual patination process. The three panels were etched over a month [while I was traveling in Argentina!] and then lightly sanded. A full neutral wash was laid over the entire surface, and then solvent dye was stamped and brushed to enhance the composition. The panels may be hung aligned or not, in order or not. Tryptics give you the opportunity to play around with how the final composition looks in your home.
