the lady and the rose: new etchings and paintings from the classes

This beautiful rose was made by Johanna who's been participating in our art classes for several years. Inspired by a post card, it was a challenge for her to see whether she could represent the wood grain with acrylic paint and the intricate pattern of petals in the rose. I enjoyed watching the painting progress.
And here are a couple of etchings from the dedicated etching club. (Above: from Alexander and below: from Maike.)  Both have been made by etching on a copper plate and have then been treated with an aquatint.
