Bridget Farmer. Bridget specialises in various forms of printmaking, but it was the Dry Point Etching I was most interested in learning. Myself and fellow local designer Fran Pidgeon headed to Bridgets fabulous studio armed with rubber gloves, aprons and itchy fingers ready to print!
Bridget has dedicated 2013 to 'The Year of the Finch' and has been drawing and creating prints specifically on this little bird. Above is one of her very cute dry point etchings of said Finch.
tutorial about this technique on her website. Above you can see Fran's very intricate and detailed beautiful bird print (left) and my sketchy-style teacup print and inked acetate plate (right).
