Two posts in a day!
For a short while now I have been enjoying the challenge of producing small works, in this case small etchings mostly of local animals. I seem to like to push etching to the more unpredictable area, allowing ‘open bite’ and unintended plate marks to develop. This of course means that sometimes I ruin the plate! It is quite surprising how sometimes an extra minute in the acid is too much. It is part of the journey of discovering a bit about myself as I learn how I like to make art.
Below are some photos of these etchings. I am allowing the possibility of large editions (up to 50) to make them more affordable and I am trying Etsy to see if it helps to put the work out there. I do not show my work much so I am exploring this venue, at least for the small work. Let’s see!
