Aquatint Duck

Yesterday's demo for Intro Print class was aquatint. I was pleased with the different effects I tried, but was disappointed that some areas were not etched as much as I thought they would. Oh well, I'll just be another good example to the students that things don't always turn out perfectly the first time, and tweak it until it turns out better. 

I also did a second test plate to show some of the more sporadic things that can be done with aquatint, and this one turned out as expected - much better than the duck example!
