Studio View

I’m working on scraping the plates every day, even if it’s just for an hour or two at night. I’m going to the studio to print proofs every other night.  The continuity I gain from this work schedule is so important. Each time I sit down to scrape a plate, I feel like I can remember pretty quickly where I left off, and this allows me to get back on track immediately.

I think I’m becoming more efficient with my scraping technique on the copper plates. My first proofs are further along than my earlier proofs.  The overall contrast is better, and I haven’t been as conservative about digging in bright white passages. This really cuts down on the number of states I have to make to finish the print, which is a huge time saver.
