Sweet Chestnut II is an original wood engraving. I created this print in Devon sat at the base of the sweet chestnut tree. I didn't sketch the design out first, I used my traditional wood engraving tools to engrave the design straight onto the English boxwood block. Working like this creates freer lines and a looser feel. This is a reduction print, the first layer was printed and then I cut more of the block away before printing the second, darker layer.
