An intaglio print using etching, drypoint, and aquatint is treated with acrylic paint. I then draw in charcoal from a live model on the print.
This multi-stage mixmedia process allows the precise lines of etching and the loose drawing technique to contrast nicely and balance each other. A balance of free-flow and precision is often required of us in life. Knowing when to use what is key.
