Change of medium

In the previous post I showed some watercolours derived from the family photos. I have recently been doing a few days printmaking, during which I translated the watercolour portraits into solar plate etchings. A transition from one medium to another Рdrawing to painting, painting to collage, paint medium to print Рoften suggests new ideas and directions. These are three of the etchings, they are small, just A6 size Рthe reproduction here is over lifesize, but shows the textures very well (ink wash and graphite pencil). There are six portraits altogether and I have also printed them as a single block image, which will be posted soon.Father solar plate etching A6 Judy Martin
