Here is an aquatint on copper plate, based on a drawing.
I made it at ELP Studio in Stepney. It took all day! I made 5 prints. This is one on Khadi paper which has a very strong texture.
Yesterday I experimented with aquatint at East London Printmakers.
These are three very small plates, about 3 inches by 2 inches. Click to enlarge the picture.
No.2 Aquatint + spit bite
