Description

An intricate, handmade wood engraving of the Eurasian blue tit (Cyanistes caeruleus). Most commonly recognised by its distinctive blue and yellow plumage, here Rebecca’s use of monochrome serves to highlight the delicate feather patterns and structures – highlighting another layer of beauty of this common bird. Note: actual image size is 8x10cm; printed on a larger piece of paper with generous margins to allow for mounting and framing. A framed print from this edition is also available via Artfinder. Wood engraving is a traditional form of fine art printmaking. The artist uses specialised tools to create the image in relief (and reverse) on the end grain of a block of hardwood – usually boxwood – by removing the ‘white’ parts of the image. This technique is painstaking and highly technical, and allows for the creation of exquisitely detailed works. Rebecca’s wood engravings have been exhibited in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, with the Society of Wood Engravers, and in galleries across the world from Japan to the USA.
