fresh off the print press...

...i started working on an A5 piece of copper on Wednesday evening in artlab. over the last couple of days i have done a hard ground etch which is the line work and three different aquatints which are the tonal areas of the print. i was going to print the deckchair as red and sea a mixture of blues but in the end i went for a mixture of blues all over. the little printing press isn't working correctly so i didn't stay too long in the print room today. the bottom image is a close up of the print and its tonal areas.
