Children were brought to Jesus that He ,ight lay His hands on them and pray.
I put a softground on this and also did a spot etch for the Blessed Virgin’s face. I put the etching solution on with a brush locally and let it sit for two minutes. I scraped and reshaped the cliff next to the Virgin and also put a shape behind Jesus, so it would enhance Him as a focal area..
Now it is a matter of cleaning up some areas and doing a little better job scraping and burnishing in some places. I proofed this on domestic etch and the paper was a little wet, but the bleeding was restricted to the edges outside the print. I’m getting close to an artist proof.
I started a study for Agony in the Garden yesterday, doodling during a meeting.
