Second & Third Proof

Third Proof

I am sorry I didn't take a picture of the line etch. The line etch is similar to a blue print. It gives me a clear guideline on which I can start building my textures and values.

The second proof was pulled after I applied a soft ground to the plate, ran it through the press, placed it in an acid bath, and then printed it to proof it.

Next I aquatinted it and achieved a slightly darker value on the tail.

Today I will proof the second aquatint and see what other adjustments need to be made.

Wish me luck.
