Heres an etching I did this morning. Its 4.5 x 5.5". I'd like to do it again with a different approach towards the water, which I don't like very much, and perhaps some highlights around the sailboats and lighthouse so you can see them better.

You did this this morning? I'm impressed...nice line work. It takes me days, sometimes weeks, just to prepare a plate. LOL -- I am slowwwww. ;)

If you want to try something different with the water, maybe some aquatint to create texture? :)

marnie, amazing for a one day etching. I work my plates sometimes up to two weeks before I get them the way I want them to appear. You got some nice plate tone on this one. How large do you normally work? I tend to keep to smaller plates.

Nice piece of work marnie :)
Love the way you have done the clouds.
