Elegant stylised study of a girl on a sofa.
Sketched directly onto a prepared copper plate with a bamboo pen and sugar-lift solution. Then acid etched using traditional intaglio techniques.
Attracted to the composition of the relaxing model, as she looks knowingly at her viewer.
Features and details are enhanced by the thick and thin lines of the pen.
Made many preliminary sketches before starting the plate-making process.
Especially pleased with the finished work and with its popularity at the RA Summer Show.
