Appealing study of a girl resting at a 'life' class.
Sketched directly onto a copper plate with a brush and sugar lift solution, then acid etched using traditional intaglio techniques.
Delicately painted background was added at a later date, Gina's pretty face and casual pose add extra appeal.
Especially pleased with the finished work showing the sensitive brush strokes.
