Nice to look at..

New pretty things., both double plate etchings with aquatint and the top image also has a 'rollover' added, a technique where you roll a thin veneer of ink over the wiped plate prior to running it through the press. 
A friend of mine saw these and suggested I have an exhibition entitled 'Nice to look at'. I love the idea. Few artists exhibit work that celebrate being 'pretty', it's almost anarchic!
