The Joys of Printmaking
Anne thinks I need to use these as my profile pictures...) because I was playing with rosin aquatint again.
I think I'll leave it this way for my professor to take a look at and see what else I can do. I'm just now starting to understand that you work into these plates again and again until you have a print that you like. At first I thought you had to have a finished piece with the first process you tried.
And - this is a nice little side effect - it's quite the upper body workout every time I print - especially when I print multiple plates.... It's the only art I've ever done where you barely sit down for a few minutes. Unless you are sitting and drawing on your plate, you are on your feet the entire time.
Are you having a good Sunday? It sure is blustery and rainy here, but we are enjoying it!
