I have made a new etching. I wanted to make a four bird etching with the theme of waterbirds. I already had plates for the Wood Duck and the Black Swan, but I needed two more. So I decided to make a Pelican and an Egret. I had drawings I had already made of pelicans from a trip to Merimbula, New South Wales, last year and the egret I was able to draw from bird books. Although I hate to do this (draw from a book or photo) I didn't have enough time to go egret hunting. But if anyone knows where a handsome egret lives I'd love to call by and ask his permission to make a quick portrait!
