This is old work and recently found them they are part of a series of six. I love how this came out.

I bet that one color would do the trick as well. The colours add some magic, but the Etching is remarkable.

Oh man thank you so much. Trust me it is possible. Just go in with a plan that helps a lot especially when dealing with acids. The color part that is just fun and you are right one color could easily makes piece work.

Even with a plan, man! your lines are neat, that is talent; it can't be learned: you have it or not. (you have it ) and the composition!

i tend to be more messy with the lines, it's a pleasure to see works like yours. No one knows how hard it is to have  a clean drawing in a  plate untill you make one.

I am especially drawn to the red glow outline. How many plates was this? Did you just relief roll on top?

Hey thanks for your comment. It is actually only one plate and yes rolled the color on.

No problem. How did you get that red outline in there? I understand the rainbow roll, but that outline? Did you stencil it?

No, actually it was a happy accident. After applying a coat of color the outlined happened because the plate is etched in layers as well. The windows are the deepest layer of the plate with the guy on the left being the closest to the top. It was all in an effort to create physical perspective.

How did you manage the color spectrum?
Is it done at printing or after with watercolors?

cheers nicely done

Hey Sorry for the late reply. This was actually all the colors on the same plate. All the colors were spread across a glass and blended with a roller and applied that way. No post color production. Thanks for the comment. :-)
