Drypoint experiments

 Blue tit

I have been experimenting with drypoint etching. 
You prepare a metal plate for printmaking by scratching lines directly into the plate.  The incised line or sunken area holds the ink.

Indian Runners

This is a plate I made based on a photo of our three lovely Indian runner ducks.

I've been experimenting with the different marks I could make to get more shading in to the image.
