Description of Soaking It In
This image of a colorful lizard is part of my Southwest Series of art that I have done after traveling to Arizona. This is an etching with chine collie added and then hand colored. The process involves making your image on a copper plate, inking it, then running it through a press onto printmaking paper. The chine collie part is adding decorative paper to the image before it is run through. On this image the chine collie part is the log. After it dried then I hand colored it with colored pencils.
