When a Heron becomes a print

So last week I spent my time test printing my carved heron lino plates.  I’m quite pleased with the outcome so will be creating a new run this week to put in my shop fairly soon.

A spot of bird sketching

I’ve been spending time recently looking at herons. I’ve been noticing them a lot more whilst out walking and they reminded me of when I was a kid and one flew past the school. The other kids and myself thought it was some prehistoric bird back in flight. It was the first time I had seen one fly.  They are amazing to look at. I hope to make a lino print soon focusing on this beautiful bird.

Back to the old Honeysuckle.

I went back to my old honeysuckle design and decided to enlarge it slightly with the idea to block print it on to fabric. I was still unsure where I was going to go with it but managed to make a purse out of the print. I’m hoping to get round to producing more of these soon.
