'Sheep Huddle' size 35x30cm, Linocut 2018

Inspired by a walk on nearby fields in the March 2018 snow. The snow flakes were falling slowly in spiraling drifts and the sheep had just been fed at the trough. The ideas for this design came from a watercolour that I had made (see previous blog) I hope that you find it interesting to see how a linocut design evolves, from watercolour,to simplified drawing, to carving and then print.
