Aquatint etc


New work by etching.  The second picture is aquatint, which 
makes really smooth texture. The original illustration was 
really really simple, but aquatint makes it more interesting.
I like this big fish. He looks more lively compared with
 my line drawing. I will put some subtle colours later.

Wow! How long did it take you to do all the lines in the trees?!?

I like both of these, Kazu. The Aquatint has a really nice look to it. You are becoming Kazu, Queen of Printing! hehe

Thank you Paul. But it must be long way to become Queen..! I had a big mistake when I try aquatint for the first time, so I'm really happy with this 2nd work :)
