Chose a virtue or vow and explore how to express it through color, composition, and shape
Materials: Pigment on 70x40" canvas
PRINT MAKING: ETCHING TECHNIQUE
I combined my etching skills and fabric skills to create a collection of botanical prints. In the background, I imprinted a piece of fabric on the plate. I then covered the plate in hard ground, so I could draw my botanical design on top of the textural background. With oil paint, I created two colors and then combined the two to have a cohesive third print.
