A few months ago I made these 3 etching plates, which layer over each other, and put one of the best prints into an exhibition for Matariki. I want to do some more prints from the same plates for an upcoming exhibition, and to experiment with the colours more.
One thing about media skill, it is really hard to produce quality results immediately after taking a break for a couple of months. It takes time to refresh the skill knowledge, to re-tie those links between eye and hand and brain! and with printing, this means making quite a few prints to re-find that rythym. And with etching, that takes time.
These 'knowing hands' are improving, but I still think another day or 2 of printing is needed to really bring out their beauty. I am loving the colours though.
