New wood engravings
2 February 2019, 15:48

I have two new wood engravings on the block at the moment. The first is the Bakerloo Underground Station at Paddington. The Bakerloo line is one of the oldest parts of the underground network and still retains this history in its walls and structure. Its quite shabby appearance is why I love it so much.

The second of the two blocks is an engraving of a wasps nest. It is a picture I have always wanted to try and capture in wood. Wood being the material used in the formation of the pulp the wasps use to construct their intricate architecture. In the case of my engraving I am using boxwood, the wasps using whatever wood they have to hand. The ones in my little garden are often seen stripping the surface of the shed, fence and table panels!
