My Seated Lady

Starting from a life drawing and working again in aguafuerte. One of my favourite prints so far, step-by-step …

My original drawing on left, inversion in middle and plate on right
Close up of plate before acid bath. Image transferred with sandpaper
And after the acid bath!
Removing the varnish that had protected the metal.
A metal plate ready to print from.
And the first print!
Inking up for a deep pink print. At this stage how much ink you do or don’t ‘clean’ off the plate makes a big difference to the print
And fresh from the press!
My Seated Lady. Deep Pink = Geranium Red and Sepia blend
My Seated Lady – plural!
