Mezzotints

What they lack for in numbers, they make up for in visual strength.  Mezzotints bring grayscales and gentle color modulations like few other techniques in printmaking afford.  It's no wonder the technique has spawned its own sub-culture of collectors.  There aren't many printmakers who have turned to the mezzotint rocker to express themselves, as the small number of works below shows.  But those who have usually don't do so lightly or in vain: softness of tone abounds in each of these prints.
