Back in the studio this morning, I printed the latest version of the drypoint I'm working on. I had worked on the plate this week by adding much more line work, clarifying some details, and scruffing up the background. Also, because the first state was such a light print, I knew I needed to tighten the pressure on my etching press. This state printed satisfactorily in that regard.

The image is developing a lot more personality and interesting line work. But I can tell I need to keep working on definition, volume issues, and the area of the pod above the stem of the abstracted paperwhite flower.
