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.
