Magnificat
This was my first episode of scraping and burnishing for this print. Because an acrylic ground requires roughing up the surface of the plate with sandpaper (300 grit), the image was pretty gray everywhere. Now it is beginning to look like somethng.
Jesus is the center of the universe, so He’s the center of the print. He will be highly deverloped, mostly in line, I think, like Rembrandt did. I’m not sure I want to use any wash ground or soft ground except maybe in the sky. I’ll see how it looks when I do it..

Jesus is the center of the universe, so He’s the center of the print. He will be highly developed, mostly in line, I think, like Rembrandt did..
