Today is grey, wet and horrible. Everything on my growing todo list seems silly and unimportant. So…….. I put it aside and decided to draw instead.
There is nothing better on a Sunday afternoon than tea, cake and a bit of life drawing.
The final butterfly isn’t a butterfly at all, but a moth. It is the same etching that I printed some time back on the wrong paper. Here it looks much better. The right tools make all the difference.
A while ago I started on some butterfly and moth etchings, but I didn’t have the right paper to print them with. The paper arrived this week so, today I got to printing them. Here is the first one.
The final layer is printed! This brown addition finishes the butterfly.
I have to let the ink dry. Then I can sign my name, and add the print number to each print that makes it through the final check.
This one has taken a while to complete – the downside of having a full time job that isn’t art!
