Whenever I visit Cromer there always seems to be at least one cormorant hanging around on this ‘fishing perch’, though I believe channel marker is the correct term. However,  on this misty September morning, as the sun was trying to break through, these three kept me entertained for ages.

 

These are from an original reduction linocut of an edition of 15. The reduction method (my favourite technique) uses a single piece of lino to produce a multi-coloured print. The lino is gradually cut away as each layer is printed and the image emerges. Sometimes, only a very small printable area remains for the final, darkest tone. As the block is essentially destroyed during the process, a reduction print can never be reprinted.
