Come Up And See My Etchings

5 Jul

Finally, here they are, two of my newest little [A6] photopolymer etchings. There are more to come but I’ve just got back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop and it’s my bedtime, so I’ll post the rest over the next couple of days. Goodnight πŸ™‚

    Fantastic, Rosie! Really good!
    Incidentally, one of my friends at Hot Bed Press really did use the line in your title on his wife-to-be! And he really had some etchings to show her!

    I have really enjoyed seeing your etchings, Rosie. These solar plates are so nice; there is a lovely moodiness to the pieces.

      Thanks – I’ve really enjoyed learning the medium and it’s inspired me to do loads more. I’ve been looking for a way of producing a brooding sort of quality in my printmaking and I’ve found it!

    Lovely work Rosie I particularly like the first one, the shape is what grabs me

      Thanks Helen. In the original drawing, that image is reflected in the drawing room mirrors and I’d concentrated on drawing the front view, only sketching in the reflection in the last few minutes of the pose. As luck would have it, the reflection is far better than the one I spent nearly an hour on!

    Love em. first one has an art-nouveux look to it.

    • Rosie Scribblah July 6, 2012 at 20:48 #

      Thanks Hansi. I’ve been using a dip pen and Indian ink since I did that Renaissance drawing course a couple of months back and the medium seems to come out like that – a bit Aubrey Beardsley.

    These have a very nice soft feel to them. I like them a lot.

    • Rosie Scribblah July 6, 2012 at 20:47 #

      Thank you Alli – the medium gives a softness and richness to the print and I think the ink helps – it’s a very soft one.

    These are beautiful. I especially like the feet in the top one, and simplicity of composition and contrast in the bottom one.

    Oh my word, those are divine ❀

      Thanks Hannah. They’re showing in The Brunswick now – opening party on the 19th if you can make it πŸ™‚
