Etching and chine colle
18" x 12"
One of my first etchings. My first studio woes of what happens when other students get soft ground on the hard ground rollers and it mixes onto my plate. I had to scrape and burnish most of the plate after the soft/hard ground flaked off in large chunks on my second round of etching leaving most of the image open bit. It was a true adventure.
There are three art historical references. Can you find them all? One should be very obvious!
