Striking pose of a girl stepping from the shower holding her towel, then looking back as if responding to her name.
Sketched directly onto prepared copper plates with crayons, then acid etched using traditional intaglio techniques.
Attracted to the composition of the stylised figure. Bold repeated lines help suggest graceful movement.
Black thick and thin marks exaggerate the model’s limbs against the softer background.
Especially pleased with the finished print showing the colours of the three separate plates.
Based on a earlier and smaller etching ‘A’.
