Contour drawing of a figure looking over her shoulder.
Sketched directly onto a prepared copper plate with a pencil. Then acid etched using traditional intaglio techniques.
Attracted to the composition of the model looking down at her viewer. A look of acknowledgement but also curiosity.
Especially pleased with the finished work showing the paler construction lines, which add to the spontaneous feel of the image.
