Five and Six Domino
Aquatint, hard and soft ground line etching.
Michael Werbicki commented "I started doing etching at Sydney Place, Bath college of further education evening classes. My first attempts were on zinc, but I began to prefer steel, it was cheap and readily available and later on I could do large plates. I joined the Bath Artist printmakers who had a big press in premises off Broad Street, Bath. I made for them and myself, aquatint boxes. I also converted a mangle to use as a proofing press at home in the old linen storeroom of our flat in Grosvenor Place, Bath. I think the work of printmakers that influenced me then, were Terence Millington, Norman Ackroyd and Peter Ford."
