It's the summer and there's open access to the university's printmaking studios, hence I took this opportunity to play around with some etchings. The following were done with a single zinc plate using soft ground. Quite like the effect of using different inks on a single plate.

Some time ago, I completed a series of paintings for a friend, portraying her two boys and their favourite stuffed toys. I had fun while doing these, and was trying to emulate the watercolour backgrounds commonly found in Lisbeth Zwerger's (one of my favourite children's book illustrators) illustrations. I think they turned out quite well :)
