Etchings Update

(Another update from my phone.) The leaves are looking much better but the other one still has quite a ways to go.

Etchings- Leaves and Things

I'm attempting to take photos off my new phone & post them... here goes nothing.

These both started as half demos, half me wanting to just to do these things. 

The first plate is two attempts at soft ground with leaves. The first attempt bombed so I turned it into aquatinted leaf shapes. The second attempt is still in progress, but is much more promising. 

The last one here is a more straight forward line etching in progress, and later there will be some aquatint added. I was asked to do a print at some point with this passage. We'll see how it turns out.

Trinity Commission - Not Done Yet

Thought I would be done this past week, but after seeing the "finished" printed results I'm not completely satisfied. These test prints have been hanging in my hallway as I figure out how to tweak them into completion.
