Great-crested Grebe Lino-cut

Whilst at the recent art exhibition (during a rare quiet time!), I managed to carve my design for the Great-crested Grebe lino-cut which is due to be published in a poetry anthology of poems about freshwater birds later in the year.  I have already completed the Kingfisher and still have another Heron design to carve and print.  As the designs have to be in portrait format, I cannot use my previous Heron design.

I have just treated myself to a set of Pfeil carving tools to use for my lino-cuts and I am soon going to have a go at woodblock printing using Japanese plywood, so we shall see how that goes and I will keep you all up to date with the progress !

My new art project idea in conjunction with the Hants and IOW Wildlife Trust is taking shape, but you will have to wait a while to hear the full story.

I had fun with my graphics package creating the montage below.

  1. Just enjoyed looking at your exhibition. I tried once before to comment, but was not able to find where to comment. I loved your video of the dragonflies and ducklings. This was a lovely project.


It is always lovely to hear your comments. Please feel free to leave them here and I will approve them asap.
