I am still working through some of the etching plates that I made at college, I seem to have made so many.... I remember proofing this zinc plate there and then quite forgetting that I had it until I found it again whilst looking for something else! The something else was quickly forgotten as I was excited to print a few variations from this plate. Each print is quite different in colour going from blue to blue/grey to grey (left to right). As I print I like to adjust the colour modifying it with a bit of this and a bit of that in much the same way as I cook, seasoning as I go along.
The inspiration came from a trip to the Bournemouth Oceanarium where I spent a good half an hour watching a half dozen or so of these beautiful creatures. It is well worth a visit if you are visiting the town.
