Crunch time

Studio View

I have been working furiously over the past week in order to get this first phase of mezzotints finished in time to send them off to my framer. I had a few unexpected setbacks this week in my schedule, so I’ve had to squeeze every free moment I can find into getting these prints done.  I’ve been stressed, especially since this is a process that you really cannot rush without seriously compromising the quality of the work.  Scraping the plate has to be done slowly, and the proofing process is time consuming because you have to go through many states before arriving at the final state. Fortunately, today things are looking up as I only have one more print to finish before Sunday.
