‘Møstings Hus’ 2022, line etching, burnished aquatint, drypoint, relief roll and chine collé, 14.7 x 16 cm ed. 12

I’m currently in the midst of editioning my latest etching ‘Møstings Hus’ at Borch Editions, where I’ve been so lucky to receive expert advice from master printers Tom Jennions and Mette Ulstrup, as well as Niels Borch Jensen. My challenge was to achieve the same glow in my prints that appears in my paintings via a bright orange underlayer. Through a long process of trial and error, I had to re-learn the art of accurate multi-layer printing (there are 4 in this print), find the right colour combination and discover the chine collé solution that brought it all together. Møstings Hus is a historical house and gallery in Copenhagen that was opposite our first apartment when we moved to Denmark. I was always intrigued and inspired by seeing it in the changing seasons, with the many trees of Frederiksberg Have surrounding it and providing an ever-changing backdrop.

I’m excited to apply this newly discovered combination of colours and printing techniques to the next series of prints, and see where it takes me. Now I can bounce between painting and printing in a more cohesive way and let the different mediums inspire new ideas. I just need to find some time to get into it!
