Practice makes perfect...
first state, copper engraving
first proof, wood engraving
I've pulled few proofs for copper and wood engravings on the weekend.
The wood block made me realise how much I didn't practise, as the image didn't turn out to be as good as I hoped. I think I was a lot better when I was a student. My hands seem to have forgotten what they used to do before.
The copper engraving just showed how much more work I needed to complete this piece.
I think I was a lot better when I was student!
I felt a bit disappointed but I now feel very determined.
I'm so determined to practice everyday so my hands and head remember what they used to do everyday!!
It's just so too important to practise daily.............
