Red Horse grazing -etching

I like the simple, graceful shapes that form this horse. This little etching was created using a few different techniques. The horse was developed in dry point (cross-hashing the plate with a sharp tool), which gives it a velvety appearance when burnished. Soft ground (pressing a cloth to the ground then etching) was used to give the background texture.
