Winter at Carlton Marshes


'Winter at Carlton Marshes' was created for Suffolk Wildlife Trust as a design for one of their Christmas cards.  But if they hadn't asked me, it would be the sort of place I would have been compelled to make a print of anyway!  It is a very special place made up of meadows, wet grassland, reedbeds, marsh and woodland.  I visited on one of the shortest days of the year and was spoilt for choice with different views and wildlife.  I wanted to capture the feeling of the crisp cold day, combined with the glowing colours you get from the low setting sun.  

This is a reduction linoprint and is an edition of 10.  Lawrence oil-based relief printing inks on Zerkall paper.  The paper meaures 54 x 38cm and the image is 36 x 26cm.
