New plate am currently workin’ on - along wi’ the other lot. It’s a wee tiny one, did a quick drawing based on the lyrics I’ve been writin’ called “No Light at the End of Tunnel “. I’m very happy wi’ the drawing and how it’s etched, will add aquatint or sugar lift later on.
Before and After inkin’, 040513. I drew this(onto an aluminium plate) in January when I hit rock bottom of my life. The image represents my life as whole also, and I think it’s dome pretty well. The plate’s been etched through a process that involved putting it in the acid bath three separate times, redrawing some lines that were too thin and blocking some bits before third etching process. I am quite proud of the result, now I just need to make some good prints of it.!
220413. Printed a few more, tried a different layout. Also collagin’ wi’ pale blue tissue paper turned out pretty kool.
Did a few more prints today, tryin’ to figure out which layout would work the best…
Two-plate print, proof, 190413. Never done two plate prints before, and this was tricky cos of the two plates being shaped differently. I think it worked nicely in a way although am not very keen on the indentation the second plate(The Goat) made across the image. Will do more prints on Monday to see if I could get a better result. Overall I really like how these are combined together and the layered bit in the middle where black meets pale blue looks beautiful.
Am quite chuffed wi’ the etching’s I did today. Chuffed also because they were done pretty quick, and yet I like the outcome. These will have aquatint on them on Fri. Cannae wait.!
