Deluge series Alpha & Beta

Here are the final versions of Alpha Deluge (etching) and Beta Deluge (linocut). I am thrilled with the results and look forward to experimenting with the additional media for this series. I have expanded the project to include 4 different series of 24 images in 24 different media.

Silverpoint II

This Silverpoint of DeLawn was completed in a single, 4 hour session. The immediacy of the medium forces the artist to make bold and decisive marks as there is no erasure and absolute minimal correction that can be done. I find that the more silverpoint I do, the tighter my drafstmanship becomes. It's no wonder the masters used this technique, it forces you to become better.
