Artist's description:

on my walks in the woods with my dogs, I came across this tiny hedgehog, sitting there, I quickly turned around, hoping the mum hedgehog was nearby, I have followed these little hedgehogs the whole summer, and it has been a delight!

WHAT IS A LINOCUT?: A handprinted linocut reduction print, reduction means that as I am printing the very short edition of 2 prints + 11 in the green combination, I cut away areas to keep the color I just printed. This means that once I am done with the cutting, the lino plate is so cut away I can't print from it again.
You can join almost 58.000 viewers on Youtube, to see how a reduction print is made and printed by me, go to the "me at work" section in this shop and see the technique.

All my lino prints are printed by me, printmaking is my big love!
I have used a range of beautiful warm waterbased inks, to describe my little hedgehog and the bright red toad stools..

SIZE: "Forest Child" is printed on a warm white piece of velvety printmaking paper,
the image measures 9" x 9" (22 cm x 22 cm)
and paper is 12" x 12". (30 cm x 30 cm)

EDITION: I have signed, titled and numbered the print.
I only have 2 prints in this color combination, there are 11 more of the green variation, that is in a separate listing.

SHIPPING: I mail from my studio in Denmark, and always take care to package my prints carefully so they arrive safe and sound. If you would like gift wrap, just let me know!

If you have any questions about this print, I am right here!
Thank you for looking in my shop, and welcome back.
