This print is a Limited Edition of 5 hand printed signed and numbered prints, together with one signed Artists Proof.
Gannet is a Collagraph print, the plate is made of mount board. It has had glue added to make the highlights and the surface has been cut and marked to add more detail such as wing markings etc.
Once the plate has been created it is then printed by the intaglio process on an etching press onto dampened hand made paper.

I love birds, but don’t very often create prints. I do draw them often in my sketchbook, some very detailed, but others are very quick studies, often of birds in flight.
This Gannet has been drawn from one of my photographs taken at the RSPB reserve at Bempton Cliffs near Flamborough, Yorkshire.

It is the home to thousands of Gannets plus Guillemots, Razorbills, Puffins, Kittiwakes, Fulmars and a variety of other non seabirds. It is a breathtaking spectacle of the natural world.
My camera, (phone and an old bridge Lumix) and sketchbook are my constant companions. I work on my artwork back in the studio using my drawings and photographs.
