In printmaking class we had to make an intaglio print based on a work from art history. I flipped through some old textbooks she had for us to use and I decided on The Birth of Venus. If you’re not familiar with the printing method, we etched our design on a plexiglass plate, inked the plate, buffed it out and the ink makes its home in the grooves.
Here’s a pic of it in progress…
Here is the plate, print, and inspiration.
I really liked this method of printing so far. I really liked that I drew it out first before I etched it. Had to keep it in my style. Of course lol.
Hope you enjoy!!

I LOVE it! Your work is so unique & identifiable yours. The teacher must really enjoy having you in the class.
This is superb! I love the way she is standing. And TOTALLY your style!
She’s definitely one of yours! Thanks so much for sharing your process. I am kind of hoping to see her pop up in future projects with your signature color style, too.

Wow, great print, and fascinating process! Sounds very painstaking to do the intaglio print; was it? Sounds like such an exciting class! Love your version of Venus.

Your style is so distinctive and fun. Great expression and movement.
What a fun, stylistic impression of the artwork. I love the subtle texture of the buffed off ink on the background.

The etching on the plexiglass wasn’t that hard to do, but I have to work on engraving a metallic plate right now and it seems a lot harder. haha.
