etching no. one

This is my very first etching ever! I am honored to have been invited to be a part of a class of illustrators at the Bluecoat print studio. The course is lead by Emma Gregory and she is teaching seven Liverpool based illustrators how to use non-toxic intaglio printing processes. What an amazing opportunity! Today was our second meeting and printed our etchings. Last week we used monotypes and next week will be aquatints. Below is a monoprint: the original print on newsprint to right and the final print on the left.
