Soft ground line etching

It's the end of the semester and I managed to churn out one more art print. I only had a couple of sessions left, so I went with a 4x6 soft ground line etching on a zinc plate. I finished it on time, and even had time to make a few revisions. My only complaint is that the values are a little too close together. I lightened the background to make the ducks pop out more.

Thats it for now, i'm taking a brief hiatus from printmaking this summer, I will be teaching art to kids though so that should be a nice change of pace. I plan on making some more prints this fall, and in the mean time I will keep posting other art projects I am working on.

Heres the latest print:

This is the edited version, after the burnishing.

Thanks for reading, and stay tuned!
