Hestia update.

Here's the next-to-last state (12!) of Hestia, the small mezzotint that's been giving me trouble. Really, I just wasn't aggressive enough with it, only due to the fact that it's a face and I'm just being a wussy about really scraping and burnishing down. I got over it. Finally, made great strides in the last two states. Will probably fiddle with one or two more areas and print several of these. (Small edition; probably not more than ten.) With this one, my second mezzo, I'm feeling a lot more confident about the process.
