I have been obsessed by the Dockyard cranes for some time. ‘Cranescape’ is one of my favourites. I have recently been working on an etching which combines the cranes with naval ships. ‘Daring’ is a work in progress – it has a long way to go. Etchings take time, there are many processes to go through (etching the line, aquatint, adding textures and so on) and you don’t know exactly what you are getting until you take it out of the acid and make a print. ‘Daring’ may have a number of reincarnations but i will get there – watch this space.
