his is a very attractive original photogravure print by the Scottish artist, Norman McBeath. It looks at all the shapes of the tree trunks in silhouette in a winter landscape.
It is an unusual technique in that it consists of an original photograph by McBeath which he has transferred onto an etching print and then inked and printed.
Printmaking is an important aspect of Norman McBeath's work. He specializes in photogravures using a traditional etching press, printing limited editions on fine art paper.
