Process of creating Bruny Island 1 (2018). The monotype was created on the copper sheet first with etching ink, bouncing the rollers on colours before applying them on the copper, to create the texture of rock and water. Printed and dried under canite boards for a couple of days. And then pastel applied.

My 1st pastel over monotype landscape. Amazing landscape formed by erosion at the water’s edge on #BrunyIsland #Tasmania . This is actually a massive structure. The copper sheet I created the monotype on has a beautiful curve at the bottom - it’s a normal printmaker’s reject and an old favourite of mine - not a distortion of the photo.

Received a lovely message from Robert Avitabile, Director of @MetropolisGallery in #Geelong . A lady had purchased a gift for her husband and 3 sons, and then this as a gift for herself, because she had danced most of her early life. A beautiful compliment. Metropolis is open today, Sun, 12-4pm. It’s a great day to visit Geelong and the coast, and say hi to gallery assistant Natasha while you're there. #Artwork detail: Ballerina (2012) #Etching on #VelinArches #paper Edition of 50 25 x 19.5 cm (#Dancer of #TheAustralianBallet in Class) @ausballet #dance #prints #printmaking #printsandprintmaking #iam_printed #worksonpaper
Monday memories. Sorting through boxes in my studio I found this little drawing of @claudiachanshaw dated 28/7/06. Claudia had graciously sat for @marcoluccioartist to scratch onto copper at a Parisian themed cafe in Collingwood oh so many years ago after we had met her and her wonderful husband @le_blanc_13 in Sydney. Absolutely beautiful, and so much fun. I invested in a digital SLR the following year, i.e. my photos failed in the very dim, atmospheric light, so I’m happy to have found a little sketch as a reminder of the day.
Happy New Year! 2018 has begun with a lovely surprise for me. Many thanks to the incredible team at @portjacksonpressgallery. Kathleen and the girls posted this today ... "The title of this etching by Debra Luccio is the perfect introduction to 2018 - 'The Beginning'. Simple, yet deeply poignant, it's a reminder of all the new things the year ahead has in store. We hope your 2018 is a good one. Happy New Year from the team at Port Jackson Press. ⠀ ⠀ Debra Luccio. The Beginning, 2010. Etching.

Wishing everyone Happy New Year's Eve! Here's looking forward to 2018. Celebrating at @mamabearcafe
Many thanks to Curator of Exhibitions at @tweedregionalgallery, Sarah McGhee, for sending photos of ’Spin 2008’ in ‘Go Figure’. It looks like a very exciting exhibition. “‘Go Figure' presents a selection of works from the Gallery’s collection that showcase dynamic representations of the human figure." 📷David Toyer
Spoilt! Very special day yesterday. It's been a tough old year, but full of great moments too.
#tbt to receiving this lovely photo from Marco. Kay and Peter are picking up their #artwork today (top Garland Rose #monotype ). Gotta be lucky when such nice people purchase work. Our artwork has introduced us to some incredible people! Purchasing, exhibiting, at artist talks, while creating the work, sitting in theatres, sitting on trains! … #lovemylife
Very lucky to be included in ‘Go figure - Works from the collection’ showing at @tweedregionalgallery until 21 October 2018. I’m in great company, hanging beside #EuanMacleod . A beautiful gallery, with an inspiring view and lovely staff, any excuse to visit. Many thanks to Director @susimuddiman for her wonderful support and our beautiful friend Kerry Johnston who sent me this photo with a lovely note. Kerry wrote saying she saw the artwork and said, “Wow, I know this artist.” And felt proud. Which makes me feel very special, and very, very grateful. Btw, if you get to the gallery, visit the cafe! #Artwork : Spin (2008) #Monotype on #VelinArches #paper 78 x 108cm (#LauraHymers , #PetravanNoort , #BrandinSteffensen & #LukeGutgsell @tiffanymillscompany rehearsing #TiffanyMill ’s #LandFall ) Tweed Regional Gallery Collection
