I created a linocut illustration of a nightingale singing on a tree branch. Nightingales are often sighted in the woods next to Tranmer House at Sutton Hoo in Suffolk.
The illustration has been used on the cover of a River View Walk guide. The new walk through woodlands is home to a variety of wildlife and gives views over the River Deben.

See the step-by-step blogs about how I created each of the linocut prints for Sutton Hoo in the links below:
There are five more linocut illustrations which include King Raedwald, wild flower meadows, geophysics, grazing sheep and Basil Brown. These will be used later in the year for further Sutton Hoo marketing materials. I’ll share these as soon as I can.
Hope you’ve enjoyed reading this as much as I loved creating the linocuts.
