Black Choker

The Black Choker

I’m spending more time in the Etching Studio and slowly learning how to combine various techniques. And trying improve basic skills like inking and wiping a copper plate. This digital image, based on a scanned etching, which was based on a drawing from a Tuesday night drawing group, combines soft ground and drypoint techniques. The original etching is 6" x 5". The digital print shown here is 12" x 15", which doesn’t include a 1" border of plain white paper all around.
