When I travelled to Alayrac in France in 2009 I wasn’t able to carry many art materials so through necessity I chose to use a set of watercolour pans and a few fountain pens designed especially for drawing. The moment I started using a combination of these materials, I realised the similarity of the drawn marks I made and those I produced on plates with the etching needle. Before working outdoors I often worked in the studio making large etchings like the one illustrated here. Although the etchings were sometimes based on the same landscape, they often brought together the local landscape and art historical references.
