Ronau Woiceske was an artist who continuously used all types of printmaking to make art. While he was talented in multiple areas, this piece was done with engraving and aquatint. Just as we discussed in class, aquatint allows for values and shades rather than multiple black lines. In this piece, called "Silver Light", the shadows make the viewer perceive depth and space. Also, the further back the objects, the more blurry they become. Such detail like this is usually difficult in printmaking. I also noticed that the piece was one of just 45 editions.
