Elegant study of a reclining figure holding a wine glass.
Sketched directly onto a prepared copper plate with a bamboo pen and sugar-lift solution. Then acid etched using traditional intaglio techniques.
Attracted to the composition of the stylised figure, a recurring subject in my work.
Bold thick and thin lines help to exaggerate the model's body against the softer textured background.
Especially pleased with the finished work and title with suggestive wine reference.
