Learning the different printmaking techniques has been very enjoyable - pity I did not have more time to dedicate to it. The use of fine paper stock, combined with the tactile feel and look of the final print, has great appeal to me.
For the next stage of printmaking I would like to explore current photogravure techniques - combining digital photography with traditional printmaking. Might be an exciting alternative to traditional wet darkroom printing.
