Now my essay has been handed in, I am enjoying getting back to printing again.  Focusing on the drypoints and using Stella Ross Craig’s botanical drawings as a reference I am developing my little magical worlds of insects, bulbs, roots, petals, stamens etc.  The first drypoint is finished but the bottom two are at the first stage.  I drew the faint daffodils directly from nature and I realised that I hadn’t pressed hard enough.  Still, having added new imagery, I rather like the difference in line tone.  We will have to wait and see how it progresses.  I only have a few days left until this semester finishes.  Portfolio hand in on Monday!  Barry arrives in the UK on Wednesday!
