Historical Etch

Development of the drawing for a photo etched panel in my Thread Counter sculpture, recently sited in Dundee. The image is based on Forfarshire, Sheet LIV Ordnance Survey Six-inch 1st edition of 1865.

I am indebted to Stuart Duffin, Studio Etching Master at Glasgow Print Studio for his patience and expertise in helping me with this one off project.
