Etching progress

Progress feels a little slow at the moment, time is in short supply as I'm trying to squeeze in some Impress festival stuff, but what I am getting done is fairly good progress.

Here's the starting point for a new print based on the 'Puddled Path' drawing from earlier this year:

the drawing
painting in the stop out
first proof - after the first open bite
I'm pleased with the tree branches, and some of the shaping around the puddles. There's a nice bit of standing grass shaping on the right, but the branches are a bit thin in places and the texture of the ground is still too open. The overall feel is close to the drawing - a solid framework to work into.
