Long-eared Owl Linocut

I’ve finally started to print my third English Owl linocut, the Long-eared Owl, again producing black and white prints and hand-coloured versions using watercolour.

I hope to have these listed in my online shops soon, watch this space as I will be offering a discount to celebrate having 3 out of 5 English Owl linocuts available.

Barn Owl and Tawny Owl Linocuts

Just finished printing off the first prints of my Tawny Owls; adding hand colouring with watercolour. It’s quite hard to keep the brushstrokes ‘free’ and I think ‘less is more’ in this style of print. Work in progress to complete the other 3 owls in my English Owls series. To celebrate having two owls available for sale in my Etsy shop, if you buy two prints you can get £20 OFF the total price using the code OWL20. This coupon is only valid when buying my Owl prints. Valid till end of March 2019.

I visited the annual exhibition of work from the Society of Wood Engravers at Bankside Gallery this week – if you are interested in printmaking you have till tomorrow to see this exhibition.

Here are my favourite three prints from the exhibition in no particular order – it’s always the birds that get my attention time and time again. Click on the images to be taken to the artists’ websites.
