Etching Stage 1

Here are two etchings, very first state… I have been thinking about commencing a series on the theme of patterns/replication and decay/renewal…these may be part. I gathered many photographs two summers ago that I would like to put to better use. These are open bite, from photographs transferred with PNP Blue. Not sure how much I like that material, but it is an interesting way of transferring a photograph for someone who has no experience with photo-etching processes.
