A smaller lotus solar plate etching

This is another solar plate etching from an older drawing of lotus leaves from the Botanic Gardens. I love the way the light falls on the leaves and I never tire of drawing them. Yes, the flowers are beautiful but the leaves are amazing in their own right.

The top one was inked in blue with the beautiful gradient of yellows and the lower one was inked in sepia (love sepia!) with a beautiful coral pink on the roller.

  1. I am so curious to see how these are made. Two more beautiful pieces here, Wendy.
