Familiar bedroom scene of a figure lying on her bed.
Sketched directly onto a prepared copper plate with a pencil, then acid etched using traditional intaglio techniques.
Unusual view-point with the model's head at the base of the image, a recurring pose in my work.
Especially pleased with the finished work showing the repeated etched lines, helps to give the image an illustrative quality.
Unintentional background or 'foul-bite' adds a welcome texture.
