Photography into Etching – Hand Colouring

I have finished a 3 day course on photo etching at City Lit taken over 3 weekends.

You can read about it here.

A couple of the prints with chine-collé weren’t working well, so I added some hand inking to see if I could get a more harmonious image. Have a look at the before and after photographs below.
