The above image will be the final page in the book
This etching of peacock feathers flying all across the page is for the scene where the jay gets his stoled plumes plucked, i want to really fill the page with decorative feathers.
How many Prints did you make this week?
About 15 etchings
__ How many of these taught you something new?
About half, i figured out that when the paper is too wet the ink creates a very pale, washed out effect as the ink does not bite into the texture of the paper properly. This happened quite a few times before i realised it was due to wet paper!
