The inspiration

When my daughter was 8 we were on the beach at Wells-by-the-sea on the North Norfolk coast in the UK on our annual visit to my cousin. In time honoured fashion Izzy was jumping the waves as they rolled in and I wanted to capture that timeless moment that all children have jumping over the waves as they roll in. It has also acted as a time capsule for us from that happy time.

Print process

This print is an etching created with 2 copper plates printed on the Rochat press at Oxford Printmakers.

The sea and sky are printed first on plate 1 using 3 tones of blue, then the figure and wave tones are printed in black using the second plate. The print is printed on to heavy 300gsm Fabriano Rosapina paper. The print is printed by hand and takes about and hour per print to create. The wet prints are dried for a week in the drying racks at Oxford Printmakers before signing and editioning.
