Etching in Progress

I am working on a copper plate etching of my friend, Mr. Abdulrizak, a book dealer in Cambridge. I was invited to make a print for a project about the bombing of Al Mutanabbi Street in Iraq.  Line etching on copper is a beautiful process.  This is the second proof; I will add more cross hatching to build up the gray and black tones.
