SPITE – a series of prints

by louisagiffard

I am making an illustrative series of etchings on the same plate, about spite houses.

A fine piece of architecture, just waiting for ominous urban sprawl to begin

Two houses on the same plate. The gradation in the background is plate tone solely.

Once again, it's all in the way you can push ink around on the plate

More houses appear. Still to come - three more etches

The same image in white ink

And finally..in sepia

“SPITE” is going to end up being a book – images only, no text. There are three more etches to put on the plate – three more progressions of the image. It’s all basic hard ground etching. I’ll put up more in a few months.
