Blackthorn, I just couldn't resist trying to capture this pretty white flower we are seeing all around us onto paper.
I didn't realise a difference between the Blackthorn and the Hawthorn is that the blossom of the Blackthorn which is out now, beats it's leaves, whereas the Hawthorn waits for the green shoots. I'll look forward to tackling that one in May xx
A reduction linocut print, each one is slightly different in the way I've applied the ink and colour.
I love the lightness of the flower and the delicate branch.
