Little egret linocut


Just back from a lovely weekend with my sister and family, and now have some time to post my latest linocut - a little egret.

Reduction linocut, printed area 6 by 8" approximately, on Simili paper.

This is based on a photo I took a couple of years ago at the Ouse Washes nature reserve. When I was a bird-mad kid little egrets were unthinkably exotic; over recent years their range has expanded, and they are now a reasonably common sight at wetlands and gravel pits.

Some stages below:

Quite a striking bird, and they're great to see in the wild :-)
