H20 2

More prints!! This one is a 2-plate etching, also based off of water. When I took this class, I was kind of stumped on what to make my etchings look like. A lot of kids in the class were doing super cool illustrations of monsters and funny things..and I am no illustrator, so I wasn't sure what to do. I think by using water and oceans as inspiration, it allowed me to really explore materials and techniques, and to not worry so much about having to draw an image. I had fun learning how to create different textures and surfaces, and to create depth and atmosphere by using only a thin copper plate!

Haha remember when I said I would post something everyday?? It starts NOW!
