Fragment #1, Drypoint

“There is a story I once knew, but all that is left are fragments…”

Drypoint is an intaglio printmaking technique. An image is incised into a plate with a hard-pointed “needle” of sharp metal or diamond point. Traditionally, the plate was copper or zinc, but today, a clear acrylic sheet is commonly used.
