I’ve been longing to have a go with etching and aquatint for some time now, despite all the scary chemicals involved. Last weekend, I attended a one day workshop with Alan Birch , who took us through the process of creating an etching with aquatint (you can find details of these processes here). Whilst there are things I would change if I did it again, I am delighted with this print. It looks like something out of a book, as if someone else actually made it. I just love aquatint.
