New Etching

Yeah not a surprise here lol Back to the old stand-by of etching raptors, but I do enjoy etching these gorgeous birds and like to think I'm good at it :) And to continue to drive myself insane, there are a lot of feathers to create, since its a nice shot of the wings and back

Some people might think its cheating using clear perspex to etch on and using a photo or drawing under the glass to etch but I take the photo so its still mine just less work not having to redraw the bird to get ready to etch from. And they take long enough to etch, I will do anything to save time on them.

Iceberg Ahead!

Sort of Landscape/Seascape painting done in 3D

I wish I could have made it bigger, 3 times this size at least but would have been a pain in the butt to move around and I'm going to have a hard enough time at this size trying to find a place to put it lol. I need to put a coat of matt varnish/medium on it to try to tone down the shine a little bit, it really sparkles when the light hits it, maybe a it too much sparkle.

Finished Rook

Finally finished this today and pretty happy with the way it looks :) Really need to get that printing press built soon before I start drowning in printing plates :p

Throwback Thursday

You know you are going Trick'0r'Treating in Canada when you need to wear a winter coat:p

No date on this one, but I know thats the house will lived in when we lived in Hamilton, I could be 12, which would make Danielle 9 but I could be a bit older. I can't remember what we were supposed to be under the coats lol
