Etchings

Etching: Waiting

Etching: Fairy

I took the intaglio workshop at work and made two little etchings. My first etching experience, and I really enjoyed it.

I will have to google intaglio, as I have no idea what it is. The art you created using that method, OUTSTANDING!

The image itself is almost about regular postcard size.

Dawn:
It JUST means "printmaking". I used etching to create mine.

Lisa:
Thank you!!!

Your picture of the fairy (?) with antenae and wheels reminded me of a little drawing I did which I will post up on my blog.. been meaning to for ages. That in turn was inspired by Shaun Tan, The Lost Thing which has some simply stunning artwork! Love your work, keep blogging x

Yes Emma, that was a little sketch from my sketch book awhile back. I love wheels, especially those really old ones. I would love to see your drawing too! Would you leave me a message when you post it? :)

Your work really lends itself to all types of printmaking... the old school, lovely printmaking. If you liked intaglio, you'll love woodcuts and serigraphy. Lithography is awesome, too.

Gorgeous pieces. How many did you run? Any for sale?

Hi Juana,
I only ran 4 from the workshop.
I am thinking about setting up a shop, not sure when yet, but I will announce it once I do. And I might run more for the shop when that happens.
