A very happy new year to you. I'm not sure where December went but it did and very fast!
|Ammonites 3 etching proofs (centre one with prepainted tissue paper chine colle) plate size 6x8cm ©2016Lisa Le Quelenec|
The above are my very modest beginnings to the new year. Three little etchings, the first proofs from a small zinc etching plate. Ammonites fascinate me and felt like a natural progression after working with chambered nautilus' - maybe spirals are becoming a new theme for me. I certainly enjoy the challenge of drawing them. Being a stone's throw away from the Jurassic coast I am certainly in the right area. The starting point for this plate was a half inch sized ammonite found at Lyme Regis, the whole perfect form lay waiting to be picked up, perfectly intact after a mind-blowing 240 - 65 million years ago.
All three are available in my Etsy store.
