Comments;

Dry point etching;

Nearly completed and ready to print ! This process is a lot more time consuming than I remembered. After it’s done, I may explore layering different print techniques to see the effects I get

Ceramic tiles; (will update photos asap- more experiments have been done, I forgot to document !)

The ceramic tiles were quite smooth to touch but were very uneven. The charcoal that is drawn on top shows the uneven surface. I experimented with pencil, biro, fine liner, acrylic paint and charcoal. I have 4 more to place into the kiln

Quick sketches;

After having good responses from others about my original fine liner sketches, I thought I would draw a few more. These are the same size as the other drawings. My next task will be to scale up and create or buy frames for them to make them gallery ready.
