Rebel of Ravens

Woodcut
55cm x 73cm

Price Unframed £195

My woodcuts and etchings of ravens came about after a winter drawing trip to Angelsey. I was lucky enough to experience the ravens massing above and roosting in Newborough Forest. After walking for a mile along a deserted beach at dusk on a cold winters day, with Snowdon in the background, I saw a dark cloud of about 300 young ravens showing off to find their lifelong mates. They were wheeling and diving, flying upside down and doing amazing acrobatics, it was a magical, haunting experience.

This lead to me wanting to do more drawing at close quarters, so I contacted Derek Coyle, the Yeoman Raven Master at the Tower Of London. He was so helpful with his knowledge and stories about the exploits of these highly intelligent birds and allowed me free access, at any time, to draw amongst them.

It was like being an observer of a violent avian version of The Archers! It was an amazing and fascinating experience which I could record in my sketch books.
