Cortona Streets and Priests: Intaglio Prints!

I have a long way to go before Intaglio Masterdom, but here's a start! This first one is two separate plates of a sketch I did of one of the alleyways here in Cortona, Italy.

And here's another version of it, a "ghost print" made by printing off of the key plate a second time:
