Summer Holiday !

PLATE REWORKED

PULL ONE ON WATERCOLOUR PAPER

AFTER REWORKING PLATE AND ON FABRIANO RAG PAPER 

Two weeks now since coming back from London. Been very busy making my hours up at work, but today I have finished for the summer. Time to reflect on everything and think about how best to move forward, it feels so long since leaving CCAD and I miss the people. 
I have done work(sketches)firstly for texprint but recently been looking at doing etchings. As per usual done some experimenting with a small plate i was given and a bit of acid -having no ground I played with this with left over bits from FMP from last project. Need to compare collagraphic print with etching  and then think of ordering some hard and soft wax and a few plates.

Texprint

Did not get through, but was given good advice. I can see what i did wrong and the whole experience has been a big learning curve. I never saw the point of doing an MA but now if I had the chance I would do the next level. I am pleased with my results and at the end of the day I have what I set out to get....A BA(HONS), plus a whole lot more. Wish our group had got together when we got our marks more hindsight...looking forward to seeing every one in a weeks time.....
