Here are etchings based on a drawing I did from outside Godfrey House, in the St Luke’s estate, Bath St, EC1V.
This one is done in the new brown ink I bought: “Terre d’Ombre Brulée”
This is aquatint.
Here’s what the hard ground etch was like, before the aquatint.
Here’s the work in progress:
Painting the stop-out varnish on the aquatint plate
before the final dip in acid
My work area at East London Printmakers
Here are some prints from last week’s session at East London Printmakers.
This was an experiment using drypoint on transparent acrylic plates.
These pictures are done with two plates.
(1) Dry point to make the black lines.
(2) Painting directly onto a blank acrylic plate and then printing that on top.
The resulting pictures are “mono prints” because they are one-off. I can reproduce the black lines, but the coloured parts are unique on each plate.
I had another go on 8th March.
Here are further attempts:
Carborundum attempt! The carborundum didn’t stick to the plastic.
