Delicate line engraving of a girl sleeping on her bed.
Sketched directly onto a copper plate with a pencil, followed by traditional engraving techniques.
Attracted to the unusual view point of looking down upon the relaxing figure.
The immediacy of the dry-point scratching the surface of the plate can produce some surprising effects.
Very pleased with finished work showing the subtle paler tones, all painted with watercolour.
