So, I have to post these, because otherwise my adoring fans (my mother, anyway) will think that I haven't been doing anything at all, and I have. I've been taking a print-making class, and tormenting myself through the incredibly slow process (of two hours/week) of working on copper plates, and an acid bath that takes FOREVER to do anything. We're doing aquatint next week, and I am very much looking forward to that.
These are all on pieces of copper that I got out of the "scrap box" (I thought I'd experiment before committing to expensive not-scrap plates), and are the result (so far) of essentially three sessions.
I do love intaglio prints, but I don't know if I have the patience for this. I'm actually quite frustrated. There are some really cool textures if you look really closely.
