This stunning Black and White Warbler is a migratory bird that I am fortunate to see in Florida.  It behaves very much like a woodpecker in the way they travel upside down on tree branches searching for prey.  To physically assist in this behavior, they have an extra-long hind claw and heavier legs than other warblers. The rich and striking black feather patterns are a perfect subject for printmaking.   This warbler is depicted life size using one copper plate and is meticulously hand painted with watercolors.

  • Technical Art Information:

    Image size: 4 ½” x 6 ½”

    This etching is hand-made on 1 copper plate, using 2 different ink colors.  In addition to the Arches rag paper used for the etching, the inks and paints employed to create the etching are of the highest quality.  Each etching requires over and hour to paint with transparent watercolors.  Because of all the hand work involved, no two pieces are exactly the same.  The finished etching has a 1 1/4” border of paper around the image with a beautiful, deckled edge.

  • Framing

    Archival framing using supreme materials. The wood moulding is custom made with a pewter-champagne finish.  The mat is an archival 4-ply fossil, and the mounting mat is an archival matt black.  The etching is floated to display an elegant, deckled edge of the beautiful rag paper that the etching is printed on.  The glass is high quality museum glass to greatly reduce glare and protect the art from fading. The back is sealed with a mounting wire attached and ready to hang.

    Framing price: 70.00
