Printmaking class – experiments with drypoint

I’m feeling my way forward but liking the medium. Drypoint seems to enable a more spontaneous, looser result than  I can achieve with collograph or linocut. Early days… early experiments. Interesting how different colours and different density of the inks influence the end result. Background helps to create atmosphere. I am keen to experiment more and frustrated that I can’t print drypoint at home as this form of intaglio printing can’t be done by hand.
