I first came across Angus Fisher through the National Art School website and was enthralled when I followed their links and came to his website and youtube channel.
Having recently completed a basic hard ground etched design myself, I sat, mouth agape, watching his video Copper Plate Etching ‘The Pied Cormorant’. So impressed am I by the detail and progression of the piece, the later hand-colouring and the design and composition that I’m showcasing it on my site for the enjoyment of my printmaker followers. It runs for a little over 9 minutes (which is a problem for modern youth who seem to have an attention span of about a nano-second) and covers conception through to finished art work. Enjoy!
