Latest Viking print

This is a 20x20cm aquatinted etching of a previous photo taken during the Jorvik Viking Festival. If you follow the blog you will have seen it a month or so ago. It was very enjoyable, and very fiddly as lots of masking-out had to be done for stages of the aquatint etch. I've tried to keep lots of textures in the print- the horn, chainmail and little woollen cap worn under the helmet in particular.
