Pachystegia insignis -
Kaikoura Rock Daisy

 

 

This handsome cliff dwelling shrub is simply rendered as line with two stages of aquatint etching and the minimum of burnished highlights. It is then inked and printed in five colours. Detailed hand colouring of the flower heads occurs once the print is dried and the stem colouring is achieved by mixing yellow ochre water colour with gum arabic.
