Etched Out!

29 Jul

Had a full-on intaglio week – made three new solar plates and proofed seven. This is one I based on a much larger life drawing. I’m using text repetitively in some of my work because I like the pattering effect it gives. I drew this onto Mark Resist rather than Truegrain as it’s cheaper – I’m pleased with the result. I have black etching ink ingrained into my fingers and I’m shattered. So much time on my feet and then the allotment today on top of it all. Never mind, picked 4 pounds of blackcurrants – they’re cooking away in the kitchen for jelly, butter and cordial; three pounds of redcurrants – they’ll be jellied too; some luscious spinach and beetroot for tea tomorrow.
