The Joy of Aquatint

...did not happen today. I have an amazing ventilation system. It's called Going Outside. With today's drizzling freezing rain the opportunity to use it just didn't happen. My aquatint method is what Kate Demke taught me: a fine mist of spray paint over the plate. I know there's another method using a rosin bag and a heat source and singing Kumbayah or something, but I've never done it and I don't have the equipment anyway.
Tomorrow I'll be in Grand Rapids so hopefully the weather will cooperate Thursday. It only takes a few minutes to spray some paint, then on to the next step.
