Drawing Byron...

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies,
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meets in her aspect and her eyes;

So, I'm attending a printmaking class which is quite awesome. We've been working with linoleum and acrylic. I had previously used linoleum and wood, but I had never tried the technique of dry point, which is the one you use on acrylic.

I tried it finally, and it turned out pretty well. The first one I made was a bicycle. But I liked the second one best. It is kind of inspired in that fragment of the Byron poem above.Oh, and I scanned the plate so you can see it. Don't mind the blueish haze...

When it is all printed, I plan to color it with watercolors...
