A productive day. We made over 30 prints, many of which will be exhibited together to create an installation in the gallery space. I was really pleased with the colour combinations and the subtle ways the colours changed as they were layered over each other. Here are some photographs of the final prints.

An incredible first day at Edinburgh Printmakers Studio working with Bronwen Sleigh on prints for part of my solo exhibition in March
My workspace where I cut the etching plates out using metalworking tools then filed the edges to achieve a smooth curve, and then to chamfer the edge.
