this was one of the first prints from a copper plate etching i did last week. since printing this, i have added some aquatint to the background and the tree top, which would be all good except that i lost a lot of detail in the soft ground impression inside the top of the tree. i was pretty upset about that because now i have to do it all over again and it will be very dark, but i'll still try. the newer version of it will be shown in the student exhibition at the lowe this year even though i consider it a work in progress still. what do you all think of it and should i keep working?
