Orchard Unmowed, drypoint, 5"x8"

edition of 25   A drypoint intaglio print looking South from my old apple orchard. This print was done in February of 2005 and is based on a ball point pen drawing I did for my Tokaido series.This print has some retrousage, aka selective wiping. It is it's charm but I am reminded when I use it of a remark one of my printmaking professors at Pratt said to me once,"McCue, get it in the zinc, not in the ink"!
