Winter Berries

Winter Berries is a new drypoint print that I've had on the drawing board for a while.  It's one of my larger ones (31 x 23cm) so was a killer on the fingers scratching the lines into the perspex plate.  It's intended as a companion piece to 'Rich Pickings' which featured a male blackbird in a crab apple tree.

This shows a female blackbird in a hawthorn bush.  The berries have been individually printed by hand and the detail on the branches is watercolour.  It is from an edition of ten.  I am also having the design made into greetings cards and coasters.
