we're all going on a summer holiday: new etching of a VW camper

We may be just on the cusp of spring but I'm gearing up to summer already and have been working on this etching yesterday and today. I set the line etching up yesterday and prepared the plate for an aquatint layer (which creates the raster effect on the VW campervan, sea and sky). My favourite ink colour is warm sepia which I think just gives it that retro look. A very satisfying day... already listed in my etsy shop!
