This large print is a reduction linocut with some overprinted transparent glazes.
These Great Crested Grebes were on a local loch last summer. The lochside vegetation was very lovely but I was struggling to compose a picture in which I could do justice to it without obscuring the birds. I decided to use transparent colours printed over the birds to give the impression of looking through the plants as the birds moved through.
The print is 71cm x 37cm and is printed on Somerset Satin using waterbased inks.
