The second stage

This is the plate I drew for making gradation. I took a photo before soaking it into acid tank. The dark part of drawing is not going to bite. It reverses the image and tones. I can post some test print soon...

finished painting!

It's different from the last posted picture, isn't it. The pink tent seems like one from a circus, and I think it makes the painting exciting and fun.
Now, the title is "l'isle enchante".

The first stage

The idea came in May. You can see the photos on the blog May 19th.
I started this etching on July 1st.
The first week, I decided composition, a size of image and how to make a texture of the table etc...
The second week, I prepared a copper plate and etched on it.
So far, I have one print for the etching. Now, I've been drawing on the plate for making gradation with aquatint. It takes time to do this process.
Hope I can post the next stage soon.

第二週目は, 銅版の用意そして最初のエッチングをしました。今現在アクアテントで濃淡を出しているとこです。近い内に次の工程の写真を載せられると思います。

Old drawing

I thought I didn't save many pictures of my drawings but I found this drawing I drew about eight years ago I guess.
I tried blind contour drawing for the outline and then making shadows on it.

To continue working on the new painting

Rotated canvas looks nice I think.

Almost finish

It seems some parts of the painting worked a little too much. But I think it needs more work.

New project

I used another my lithograph (bottom picture, title: Central Park) to paint.
I want to work it more.
I think I started working on a new etching now so I need something fun such as this kind of painting.
