Glorious Mornings, Evenings and a little more printing.

I just love this little engraving by William Blake.  
I want! I want! is one of 18 tiny engravings, measuring 6cm x 5cm, that document the different stages of man's life, published together as For Children: The Gates of Paradise in 1793.

Vilokini working on her monotypes

 I have been struggling with a dry point this week.  Sadly my rook ended up looking more like a chicken, then a pigeon.. hopefully I can rescue it. 

Going to University this morning, across Jesus Green.

What a fabulous print studio. You must be in heaven! And your walk to and from is just gorgeous. Good for you!

To be honest, I am! I love being a student and being amongst other students all studying together and discussing... such a change from being alone in a studio!

I always enjoy your posts, Lynn.
Your eye for beauty with the camera...these shots are gorgeous of the morning and afternoon...but the intellect is usually involved too. I enjoyed seeing your student environment and being reminded about Blake's engravings.
Thank you for the time spent.

"across Jesus Green" -- delightful title for a book or poem! Thank you for sharing your photos and the processes you're learning -- your work is beautiful.
