Little bird

This little bird is a combination of a very simple mono print and a dry point etching. Because of the mono print, the colour underneath is bird is the same, and yet very different.

First I placed a plate of toughened glass over the etching and painted a yellow bird shape.

Then I ran it through the press.

Then the prints went for a bath to make the paper wet for the etch print.

Finished Little bird.

The final image is small and simple, but effective.
