Trial Print

Now that the family have returned to their homes after the summer holidays I can get back to my printing.This is the old lighthouse at Nantouar not far from my house.It's now a holiday home and sits empty for most of the year,shame, I love this building it has so much character.
This is my trial print,whoop's just noticed that the "R" is round the wrong way.I haven't tried removing errors from the copper plate so this will be good experience.
I have done a bit of hand colouring just to get a feel for final result.I think i am going to do a pink background which might suit.
The aquatint is achieved by using acrylic car spray,just a dusting from about 20inches away.To be continued!
