I've been working on some fine liner studies this week. These form the basis of a series of etchings entitled Stars n' stripes. Inspired by Instagram photos by #gather_cheshire.
I like working with fine liner pen as it forces you to commit to the marks you are making. The graphic element that the stripes give to the image really interests me when mixed with the block feel of the stars. On the final etchings I am planning to add pops of colour with tissue paper or ink wash. I'll update with the final images when they are completed so watch this space.
