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.
