I have been making etchings for over 20 years, exploring in detail the beauty and character of the New England Landscape.
Bruce Peck is an American artist who grew up in India. His award-winning hand-pulled etchings derive their inspiration from the landscapes of New England and India. He creates his images by drawing the image with a needle on a copper plate that is covered with an acid resist. The plate is then placed in an acid solution which etches the lines drawn by the needle. The plate is cleaned, then covered with ink. The excess ink is wiped off carefully, leaving ink trapped in the etched lines. The heavy pressure of the etching press forces the paper against the plate and transfers the ink to the paper to create the etching.
