It has been awhile since I’ve worked on an etching. I’m pretty happy with how this came out though, and I’m definitely looking forward to doing some more work like this.
Above you can see an initial proof. Then I went in and added some more details on a second etch. I was using a hard ground here. Although it seemed rather soft, even though the bottle was labeled as “very hard ground.”
Pictures of the final print will be coming.
