Engraving, last state of pine cone...

Here is the last state of the engraving of my pine cone. I'll see if I should modify something later on, I'm not sure of the density of the cast shadow, and it's a little difficult to make it turn out the same on each impression, the pine cone itself doesn't turn out with surprises, but the cast shadow has been playing around with me. I think I start to understand how it works when doing a little bigger surface in more or less one value. It's a little tricky, but in another hundred tries, tests and printings I hope I'll get it.

Quel beau travail de patience ! Quelles sont les dimensions de cette gravure ?

Bonjour Ghislaine, j'espère que tu vas bien!
Finalement la gravure en elle même n'est pas si fastidieuse, quand je dominerai la technique un peu mieux je me régalerai je crois. Pour répondre à ta question elle fait 15x10 cm. Bise!
