Water shrew studies

Some quick studies of a water shrew. A volunteer doing pond dipping at the local nature reserve  found this recently deceased beastie. I took it home and managed a few quick studies but it was getting a bit whiffy... Did you know it has venomous saliva? Wonderful to find, I have never seen one before!

Hare linocut

Here's a new linocut print, based on a pic I took when out watching hares down the farm track. I've been in a bit of a creative hole for a while, so I thought I'd keep this simple, a one-colour print. Though I will now go and try out some different colours too!
