I've been wanting to do a print of a pelican for ages. In March I was lucky enough to see the Vermeer exhibition at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, and after my visit I had a good wander around the main collection where I found an amazing painting featuring this handsome pelican ( see photo 3 ) I immediately knew that he was my inspiration for my pelican print. I drew the painting to get the feel of the pelican and then I was ready to start work.
It's a 4 block linocut so lots of carving and challenging registering to make sure all the blocks line up ( see photo 5)
