This hand made linocut print is based on the birds in my garden who visit my birdfeeders over the Winter months. It features a Great Tit, Blue Tit and Goldfinch feasting on the peanuts in front of the rolling hills of the British countryside. The print is made up of 7 individually cut lino blocks all hand pulled through a press.
