I’m taking advantage of the half-term break to catch up with myself. This is one of a series of drypoint etchings based on my sketches from childhood photographs. I’ve used sepia ink because of its ability to instantly make something look old. I love this colour ink. I have a lot still to learn about drypoint – the first lesson being to take more ink off on the first printing so that I can see the marks clearly. (Although I do quite like the sense of atmosphere created by the ink left on the plate.)
Such a memory of childhood, Carol — love the figures and the movement!
