Travels in pictures – part II

Half a year after depart­ing towards Rome, long since hav­ing returned back home, I got my first wee etch­ing press. Starting from scratch, what bet­ter way to learn intaglio print­mak­ing than to pro­cess the pre­vi­ous trip draw­ings? Their tech­nic­al and styl­ist­ic vari­ety was such that I’d have to try the entire spec­trum of etch­ing tech­niques.
