Striking study of a girl reclining.
Sketched directly onto a copper plate with a brush and sugar-lift solution. Then acid etched using traditional intaglio techniques.
Attracted to the composition of the figure lying on her side, a recurring pose in my work. Especially pleased with the finished work showing the strong flowing lines against the delicate background.
Title was inspired by a Thomas Gray poem. Whilst the poem's content is very different, the title perfectly suits the reclining figure.
