Did you know that the pheasant is not a native bird of Britain but their origins is unknown. The only general agreement is that they were introduced into Britain in the 15th century.
I often see pheasants when I walk Mr P, I have to make sure he’s on the lead otherwise you know what will be on the dinner plate! I love how colourful the male pheasant is, and the iridescent nature of their plumage. I’m looking forward to capturing these colours in my next linoprint.
And so it begins ….
Progress so far, there’s a lot of drawing and cutting on this one.
