The Little Owl is a small bird with a big attitude.
It was only introduced to the UK in the 19th Century, and so is not a native bird, but has become a firm favourite here. I often see them perched on the telephone wires near my local nature reserve where they peer down and invariably look very grumpy!
This is a limited edition linocut print (of an edition of 50) of a Little Owl.
Each is hand printed and pulled with environmentally-friendly, waterbased ink on heavyweight quality, soft Fabriano ivory paper.
Each print varies slightly due of the pressure and amount of ink, so each one is unique.
The photographs show the stages of the print being made, from my initial sketches, to the carving of the lino and the hand printing of each print.
Each print is signed, numbered and dated by the artist.
The dimensions are 42cm by 31cm.
The actual size of the owl is 22.5cm x 19.5 cm.
Each will be backed on a board, wrapped in cellophane and then in archival tissue with ribbon.
It will be securely posted by First Class mail.
This is now available as a card in my Etsy shop.
