Occasionally an app comes along that resonates. In the distant history of my life I had real skills in printmaking. From lithography, screen printing, collography to woodblock I could use drawing and manual labour to make pictures on paper. In the realm of etching I was well versed in aquatint, mezzotints, soft & hard grounds, intaglio and dry point.
I studied Picasso, Bonnard, Goya, Miro & Durer to aspire to iconic illustrative technique.
There’s now an app for that….
Its not real, it’s doesn’t rely on skill but it looks great. I may never use another app again, until well into next week. These are a few of my etched up pics.
This is from our little Nativity, nativing under our tree…

Our tree hanging Santa on a dollarific frame….
…and finally my little eye, a recent attempt at a self portrait in front of the last real painting I tried to complete.
