Oh Dear: A drypoint printed on cushioned vinyl

Oh Dear - Drypoint on cushioned vinyl - Steph Chalmers - 2007
This work was selected for the National Painting and Printmaking Award 2007.
The child is based on Jody from the 1946 film The Yearling.

I liked the way the cushioned vinyl responded to the ink... but I have reservations about using it much more because it's a synthetic material. Printing on paper or canvas just feels better. 

I've made several other works to use up my stock of vinyl... which I will find and post soon.
