This is a limited edition linocut print (of an edition on of 50) of a heron, entitled "River Man".
Recently a heron began visiting my garden, and would sit, hunched and motionless waiting for a fish to pass. I began to make drawings, and take photographs, and this print is the result.
You can see a film of the printing of my heron on my Instagram feed:
Each is hand cut and printed with waterbased ink on heavyweight quality, soft Somerset ivory paper. Each print may vary subtly due of the pressure and amount of ink, so each one is a unique piece of art.
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 39cm by 30cm.
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.
