ABOUT THIS PRINT
I was inspired to draw a peacock because of their beautiful colour and detailed feathers. I can remember going on a trip to an island that was full of peacocks as a child and being in awe. I knew that this level of detail would take a long time to carve out but I really enjoyed working on it and seeing it take shape.
This print is based on my original sketch and is carved into a piece of lino with a set of gouge tools. The carved lino block is then inked up with a gradient from green to purple/blue, then hand printed onto traditional Japanese Washi printing paper.
