This is an original lino cut of a blackbird sitting on the branches of a flowering tree. The blackbird has always been my favourite singer, since, as a child, I listened to it singing from the treetops in the evening when all other voices had grown quiet.
Blackbird - Original Lino Print
The design was sketched and carved by hand into the linoleum then inked up with Caligo safe wash black ink and printed by handburnishing onto an A5 size Snowden or Kent acid free paper. Each print is an original and unique and may therefore have slight variations due to the fact that it is printed by hand and not machine made. There is a variation available on mintgreen Nepalese Lokta paper, and the print is also available in blue ink.
