I’ve always had a fascination with herons. This print was inspired by a walk on Thelnetham Fen with members of the Creative Fen art group. We were delighted when in the distance we saw two grey herons and a little egret take flight. I played about with the idea of creating a print featuring the three birds, but eventually settled on just a lone heron.


Reduction technique of seven layers using oil-based ink with some with slightly differing background colours.  Due to the nature of the printmaking process minor variations can occur between prints making each one a truly unique piece of artwork. This print is numbered, titled and signed at the bottom, mounted in a neutral colour and wrapped in cellophane to keep it clean. The mounted work will fit into a standard 12×16″ frame. The artwork will be packaged in a sturdy cardboard envelope.
