Work on the drypoint print continues on. If you look out the window in the photo above, you will see some of the backyard visitors that I mentioned earlier. Like many of our other visitors, these deer have been attracted to the sunflower seed that falls to the ground from our bird feeders. We love these visits!
And here is the copper plate with the figure of the woman starting to take shape. More later....
It has been too long since I made a print, and I have been feeling the urge to get back to it. As an image, I decided to go with this older drawing I'd done as an idea for a possible print years ago, but had never done. But I'd always liked the image...So I decided to go with it now.
The figure in the image is from another of my old drawing books, this one filled with drawings from the model done when I was back living in Santa Fe and attending Eli Levin's highly enjoyable life drawing group. Those were the days...wish there was such a group here in Maine now!
I like to work on my prints here at the dining table, where the light is better, and its warm. Plus I get to keep a lookout on the field in back where I often see deer, crows, occasional ravens, and other creatures.
As you can see in the photo above, the initial drawing was tiny...less than 2" x 3". I decided to enlarge the design to 4" x 6".
And here you can almost see the design beginning to take shape on the copper plate...Now I've got to get back work...more on this later!
