Snow Birds

Now that the fall weather is taking hold we get to see all the snow birds passing through on their way to southern areas and warmer days. Ducks and Geese use the lake as a stopping off point on their journey so we get to see these visitors once in the spring and once in the fall.

Unlike working on site or from a model the rendering of a goose in flight is created from memory. 
The intaglio process used to make the image is a much slower and staged way to work that does have the advantage of producing a series of prints from the original plate but looses the speed component that I find invigorating to the work.
