Chiyogami Chickadee - Red Variation

Hand pulled etching of a chickadee sitting pretty on a flowering cherry branch in early spring.  The image size is 7" x 7" (18 cm x 18 cm) on acid-free BFK Rives cotton rag paper that is 10" x 10" (25 cm x 25 cm).  The image has been hand tinted with watercolor and the cherry blossoms and leaves get their color from the chine collé method of using the press to both collage thinner paper onto the thicker paper and print on top of it simultaneously. The strip of colorful chiyogami paper that accents the etching is created in Japan and its delicate gold print is echoed by tiny dots of gold gouache on the blossoms.
