SKU: Curlew Category:

To me, curlews are the most iconic bird in Northumberland. I love the sound of their cry and I love to see them wheeling above me when I'm out on a walk. I was encouraged by making the red squirrel print to try another wildlife species, and this was an obvious choice. Luckily, I had the chance to study a specimen curlew in the Tyne and Wear Archives & Museums, as I never get close enough to them in the wild to be able to accurately make out all the feather markings.

This is a reduction print, meaning I used a single block of lino and cut into the same block several times, building up the colour with each print. In the end, I printed 5 layers. This print is in a very limited edition of just 9 prints.

The prints are sold unframed. The print size is 13x10.5" and the paper size is A3.
The paper is Kent printmaking paper. Each print is named, numbered and signed by myself.
