Hi there - that piece is an etching that I’ve hand-colored with gouache and watercolor. It’s hard to say the total time involved since there are several steps. Sketching the concept, shooting some photos for reference, drawing the finished piece, transferring that onto a piece of zinc plate (which has been prepped), trimming the print paper, printing the edition (an edition of 25 would take me about 4 hours to print), hand-coloring each print (probably about 1-2 hours per print), and finally signing and numbering them. I hope that gives you some idea of the time involved.
