This sweet little wood engraving depicts two red squirrels. It is a reduction wood engraving made up of 3 layers. I printed this edition in 2018 and only just found 2 prints which had been hiding in my cupboard!
I love nature and British wildlife, red squirrel numbers have declined in Britain due to the introduction of the grey squirrel and the loss of woodland habitat. And therefore this is a very special creature which we all need to look after.
These prints are original wood engravings. I worked onto an English boxwood round using traditional hand tools, I then inked up the block and printed it on my 150 year old Albion Press.
