2 new etchings

Inspired by the beach and the sea, even though it's winter(!), I've just finished and listed 2 new etchings with aquatint. I really enjoy creating an aquatint. I think it gives etchings a great atmosphere.  It is a bit scary though when the plates are in the acid bath, because if it's in there too long the aquatint will be too dark, and if it's too short, the whole process would need to be repeated. But I'm happy with the result!
