The next project(次の作品のアイデア)

I've been very busy a couple week but I was thinking about next project.
I took some pictures for next etching on Sunday afternoon.
These are the pictures I like soft lighting and light and shape shadows.
I think it's technically very difficult to do etching. I've never tried to do photo-etching but I may try!? I heard it's not easy to do. I don't decide it yet. I'm going to think of it.
Maybe it looks nice to painting too I guess. It's a new type of still life.
Okay, See you!

The Patina

The sculpture, the Neptune I created about five years ago. It was the third piece of my sculptures.
I've thought it looks nice to lighter color recently. So I was applying the bronze powder today. Look! The different patine shows clear to see more details.
The pictures are the back sides of the Neptune.

more worked

Hi I've been working more etch and aquatint again on the plate for two weeks.
petrakis_nomikos left a comment for the past blog "The Etching & Aquatint" posted in April 19. His idea of a title is "Escape from the net". He said it seems to be some kind of net with an opening towards a light, standing out against the dark background.
I really appreciate his comment. Also some person said it seems corals.
I made a kind of cells. The concept of this print is a human being composes many cells but I think the cells create us. The cells are inputted many different information such as the heredity from the parents and their families. I have one more thing for the print... but I don't want to tell everything. I want viewers get some feelings from it.
Anyway, I would like to thank petrakis_nomikos to his comment.
