Etchings and Aquatints

Etching is a printmaking technique that uses chemical action to produce incised lines in a zinc printing plate which then hold the applied ink and form the image. Aquatint is a complementary technique that produces different intensities of tone. The process of etching lines was very similar to my sketching experience but the ability to add tone with aquatint was something new and exciting for me.
