I struggled with festive inspiration this year, but I'm happy to finally unveil the 2016 addition to my Twelve Days of Christmas series, Four Calling Birds. I'm a keen naturalist and have been lucky enough to spend some time with puffins around the coast of the UK, most notably on a trip to the island of Staffa in the Hebrides. They're gorgeous creatures but they make a sound like a donkey, so they're probably the last species that you'd want to turn up on your doorstep knocking out "Once in Royal David's City."
This was produced using the reduction method, with a splash of watercolour, in a run of 20 hand pulled prints, printed using my new Print Frog glass baren. More news on the Print Frog in a later post.
Limited edition prints and greetings cards are now available from my shop.
