In this original woodcut words were inscribed into the ink before it dried. Dawn had not yet arrived when I reached the salt marsh and this is the view that greeted me. A barn owl was hunting for field voles flushed by the rising tide. As twilight gives way to daybreak the more colour chases away the black of night. Each woodcut in this series is individually hand printed so each print is unique. At least 4 hand-carved woodblocks were used to create this print which was built up in several textured layers.
