Dry point Etching
Printed on Japanese Paper
This is STAGE 1 of this print. I have not etched out all of the work as yet. Today I had to do a quick print to see where I was going with it. I decided to experiment with papers, inks and tissue paper. I really liked the affect I got with this. I intend taking it further. You should see Stage 2 with this print by next week. I am teaching it to the whole class and it was a bit of a hit and miss class. I am hoping we all have better results next week.
This is a portrait I am working on of my daughter. She has just turned 13 and is an amazing musician. She plays guitar, piano, clarinet, saxophone, and drums. She also sings and is loves to perform. She is a great kid.
This print is inspired by Picasso’s sketch of his wife at the time. Francis Gilot.
