Ring O Roses Print

ring o roses drypoint etching

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.)
