Chicken Drypoint etching

Theo came back from Madrid with a really beautiful drypoint etching of a wild garden. It inspired me to try it out. It's really hard work scratching into the surface of the plate but i think its worth it, i love how the lines are thick and black like charcoal. This is an old plate that i found in the scrap pile so thats what the writting on the side is about, i enjoy reusing old plates that have been scratched up and bashed about, it gives them abit more texture.
