At Terni

Here I am in Terni on  drawing and printmaking workshop. The venuue is La Romita and it is a piece of paradise. Up on a hill - an old (ex) monastery, with wonderful cooks and a luscious garden.
The first week is printmaking using a a solar plate - exposed to UV - to make a printing plate.
First assignment - work out what marks do when the etching process takes place.
Here is my test plate:
The first is a sketch on frosted  transparent acetate
 The first print was so dark nothing much came out. This is the second (ghost) print.
