This image is progressing nicely, although with the second aquatint I lost some contrast with the first. No problem; out with the burnisher to take some areas back and on with another aquatint to darken others. I should probably try printing it in sepia first however... the black may be a bit misleading as the final image will be a foxy red I think.
Tried playing about with some colour to see what it would look like... The blue background won't be plain blue as in this watercolour doodle; need to get down to the workshop for that bit as it's going to be solar plate. It's all going in the right general direction anyway.
