Studio Time Peeks

Studio Time Peeks

Having fun playing with some miniature drypoint plates

engraving a design into a perspex drypoint plate

the finished design

mixing some intaglio printing inks .. sepia, a dash of blue and a smidgen of warm black

driving the ink into the drypoint plate.. making sure it fills all the grooves .. then wiping off the excess

printed onto wet soaked watercolor paper

another print pulled then added mixed media .. acrylic painting and pen & ink drawing

another version with a painted background

ahh its good to be back home in my little studio playing
