This lino print was inspired by a red kite that I saw flying in the local area (Shotley Bridge, County Durham, UK) during the early part of 2011. The red kites are now nesting in the woods nearby. The red kites were reintroduced to an area a bit further north from us, so it is good to see them making their way south along the valley. After sketching out a few ideas, the scene of viewing the red kite came from my viewpoint on the ground, looking up into the sky.
This is one of a limited edition of 30 and is signed by the artist. The print you receive may be slightly different from the one in the pictures – this is the beauty of hand printing!
The lino print itself is 115mm x 152mm, hand printed onto Japanese simili paper. You will receive the lino print in a mat surround, which is suitable for a 10″ x 8″ frame.
