'trio of trees'

I have a few major projects on the go that are going to take some weeks to be finished enough for the blog, but while big etching plates and drawings are taking their time I try ideas out on a smaller scale. This one came together very quickly.

Another woodland print of a trio of trees, which started with a base structure of lines inspired by printmaker Michael Goro.

lines drawn through hard ground, some stopping out
trees added through sugar lift and dry brushed stop out,
the atmosphere created with spit bite
I'm going to leave this print at this stage. It can be so easy to overwork an image, I think I caught this one at the right moment.
