#throwbacksketch :DAY18: etching nature

Today i will be sharing more of my college work with you guys - I studied BTEC in Art and Design and then i specialized in Fashion and Textiles (for any of those who are wondering also i loved it! lots better than alevel art) so at college i did a lot of traditional printing as well as other techniques within my speciality. These designs are created using a traditional process called 'Etching'; its where you scratch on a metal plate to create a design and then you use printing inks to transfer the design on paper and you can use these metal plates several times before they worn out
My inspiration for this project came from nature, especially sea shells and plants - i kept the colours minimal and block

Original one colour black n white print

The plant series were my favourite as they look really modern and updated plus the simplicity of the colour and design makes it stand out more

Hope todays post inspired you and stay tuned, tomorrow i will be sharing something new with you !
