Oystercatchers at Holkham

Original reduction lino cut, limited edition of 12

Print size 265 x 175

I spotted these fascinating little oystercatchers on a recent trip to the wonderful Holkham Beach in Norfolk. They were strutting about on the shoreline seemingly oblivious to me watching them.

Reduction technique, using oil-based ink. Handprinted on Somerset Satin 250g paper using a small relief press. The beaks and legs are coloured by hand using watercolour paint.
