Ivy Wren

Ivy Wren
Woodblock print 13 x 13 cm

I found a mesh of ivy which had been stripped away from a wall recently, it's stems and leaves so finely woven together that it was almost like a piece of material. I used crayon studies I made of a wren last year to put this piece together. I printed the light stone colour first, then the red, then an olive green and finally a slightly lightened indigo blue.

Dunnock among aconites

I finished this piece recently taking more time than usual to get the colours and tones right. 
Flowers; it's a battle to work with them before they go over.

A recent woodblock print,  4 colours.
I'm enjoying working on a smaller scale however I'm often stumped for a while on how to move forward with a print. Sometimes my head just needs to be in the right place.
