Help needed identifying artist of this painting

Reply Tue 21 Feb, 2017 12:56 pm
I am hoping that someone can help me identify the artist of this painting. The painting measures 20" x 28". I think it is drawn in pen with a watercolour wash, although I'm totally open to being corrected on that! I don't have any further information about it and there is nothing on the back of it, so any insights would be very welcome!

Its a hand colored print. The "AP" stands for Artists Proof
Its an intaglio, (the print lines are scribed or etched into a zinc or copper plate. The ink is rubbed into the plate then wiped as clean as possible). The plate is pressed onto wetted paper in an intaglio press(this squishes the paper and draws the ink up from the etched lines and onto the paper)
You can see the press lines along the margin of the picture.Then the artist(s) water colored the drawing like a coloring book

Its an ok subject. Not hugely original though.
