A Loving Embrace

Let’s talk a little bit more about process. These next few proofs/prints show part of the process of an intaglio print. Again, these are etchings and used hard-ground and aquatint to make the image. I wound up printing them on colored paper. I think you can see through the progression of images here how I came to the final result. I do like to draw on my proofs; it makes me feel less precious about the work and helps me to get ideas of how I want my final image to look.
