First proof


I hand-burnished the first proof this afternoon. I'm quite pleased with it. It's rare that something prints more or less as you envisaged it, while engraving the block. There will be little tweaks and a tidy up but nothing major. I'll post the finished print next.

Wow! Looks wonderful. Love the light and shade and depth it gives the print and the beautiful frame with the flowers at teh bottom. I bet they'd love to sell it in their shop. xoxo

My favorite so far, Love it that the audience are wrapped in blankets...

It was blowing a gale there when we visited and boy did we need that blanket... Together with a flask of hot chocolate.
