My next print was done referring to a drawing of some sketchers at a session of Figure al Fresco downtown in Battery Park’s South Cove. It must have been a chilly day. When I finish drawing the model and still have time I shift my attention to the hardly moving sketchers across from me.

Copper plate (plexiglass and zinc plates were also available); oil-based printing ink; Arches printing paper (dampened); thinner paper (forget the name – Japanese paper I think) for printing a ghost image; printing press.
