Well, here is the long awaited drypoint. its 28x18cm, and is from an earlier drawing of an idle afternoon in Dorling Kindersley offices, London. It has turned out very well, and now I'm considering doing some more. There are some very interesting subtleties to the medium, such as a the light areas top right are very heavily wiped and make a lovely delicate line, the dark areas are lightly wiped and are a lovely fudgey darkness, like velvet. The lines on the bottom right are my favourite marks- they could be put to good use in a very graphic almost art deco print. Tomorrow I will do a watercolour layer on the lighter prints of this plate, so will post that hopefully tomorrow evening. Its all very exciting.
