Bonfire Night

Wood engraving on Yew

110 x 145  mm

75 + 7 artist's proofs.

Zerkall White smooth 120 gsm


The piece of Yew wood  suggested a scene with something in the sky area, I've always liked Bonfire Night, the smell of the smoke, fireworks, baked potatoes wrapped in foil in the embers of the fire.

The scene shows several people, illuminated by the fire, sparks erupt into the sky where the fireworks are exploding.

Printed in a dark blue ink.
