Photographs of my New Studio 1
I will upload these to the blog later.
Getting back to the photos of the studio although this probably makes it look like a nightmare to work in -- its not like that at all.
Once my trusty etching press was brought down stairs a couple of days ago - it was like it was/ is officially open!!
At present the etching press seems to be covered in stuff acting more like a table top. That blue print on the left is a trace monotype that I made a couple of years ago when I was testing a whole load of paper samples that John Purcell papers in London sent me.
This was in an effort to find a suitable paper. Something I have been doing for years on and off.
The idea with trying all of these thin lightweight "smoothish" papers ; being that I would then, place an order. I did do that along with probably ordering some Fabriano or maybe it was the Somerset Buff, which I really like to use. The thing is though that as of now,I can not remember what type it was.
I have yet to make a series using this particular paper.
I will upload the little test series when I can locate them - those were fun to do and are totally raw as in no preparatory drawing.
