In the last week

I have been fighting off a virus that has been coursing through the family, but I did manage some art time.

I worked on a second etching plate featuring Lady Penelope on her adventures. Having left the air balloon, she is now venturing on the back of an elephant.





So far I have etched and added an aquatint to the image. I prepared the plate for soft-ground to add a decorative texture within a paisley design.


I also added another dark red and black layers to the dancer lino-cut, mailed out a number of ATC cards for trading and entered 3 items for exhibition. Not too shabby for low energy levels :)


Tomorrow I am looking forward to going to an engraving demonstration by Zoltan Janvary from Hungary.
