Artist's description:

A casual walk along a forest track in Norfolk can lead you back into the desperate days of World War One. The battlefields of France had an insatiable appetite for timber and vast swathes of French woodland were felled and carted into the trenches. Standing trees were also destroyed by shell fire. Back in Blighty it was decided to boost supplies of timber after the war by planting a forest over the lonely heathlands of Breckland. The Forestry Commission began in earnest, planting mainly quick growing pines but these days its' focus is directed toward conservation and recreation. This print was made from a drawing made on a walk along track 110. The ways through the forest are wide and the mowing besides the vehicle paths gives rise to long sweeps of wild flowers.

This print is pulled from a relief plate cut from rubber, a variation of letterpress, akin to linoprinting. The completed edition made 6 copies. The print would fit straight into a standard 10x14 inch frame or I can trim the print as you require. Please see the adjacent photograph as to how the image is positioned on the paper. The print is on light Japanese paper and a backing sheet of the same size is included.

Materials used:

oil-based black printing ink on Japanese Washi paper
