Taking an awesome class with Jenny Schmid at Penland right now. She’s amazing, and I’ve been a fan of hers for some time. Anyway, she’s teaching traditional mezzotint, and I jumped at the chance when I saw it listed (I’ve always wanted to learn the traditional technique, using a rocker). Result above.
I’m hooked! Looking forward to making more mezzos when I get back, for inclusion in the Bestiary (A Study Guide…), an artists’ book for MFA show (scheduled for May, 2011).
