Artwork description:

The sparrows in my garden strip away all the feathery tufts from my pampas grass, to use for bedding in the Spring. They hop from stem to stem as they do it.

This is not a print made digitally and printed by machine; this lino reduction print has all been hand made - drawn, lino carved and printed by hand, so there are minor variations making each and every print unique. Only one colour was used and different printing techniques produced the different tones of colour. One piece of lino was used throughout, with ink added and more lino cut away each time. Only 4 prints made in black, and the same again with sepia and burnt sienna, so this is a very small and exclusive edition. On one photograph you can see the lino before the penultimate colour was printed; there was little lino left then, and even less for the final layer. Printed with water based light fast ink on 300 gsm Somerset satin acid free paper. Signed and numbered on the front in pencil. Room setting images are not to scale. Supplied in a neutral mount, it will fit a standard 8'' x 10'' frame.

Delivered in a strong postal box. UK delivery by Royal Mail 1st class signed for.
