The Elephant In Lahore

I started working on a new tiny drypoint. During my residency in Pakistan last year, I did a fair bit of sketchbook drawings and I spotted this carved elephant in a restaurant in Lahore. I scribbled it and I’ve now redrawn it, with a Faber Castell Pitt drawing pen, onto a small piece of drypoint card (available from Intaglio Printmakers).

I used a drypoint tool to incise the lines, making sure that the tool cut through the plastic coating. It’s now ready for printing. That’ll come tomorrow.

    Interested in the dry point card. I used to make something similar? By coating cardboard with gesso, back and front, then sealing that with a spray coating. Had texture from brush strokes. Small editions,
    ?!?!
