Trees and pyramids

Following on from the last sketch, experimenting with open bite (exposing parts of the plate to acid). Just revisiting what is so attractive about etching for me ..the mixture of chemistry/ timing/ and the sheer physicality of working in light/dark...all the mystique of old fashioned photography (yes lots of washing but plates not prints) without being stuck in a dark room. And at the end turning a handle to produce a print through the analogue press.  (Not that I don't absolutely love my computer).

A garden in summer? It has to be roses!
