This is a beautiful signed print of a pencil drawing of swallows gathering on telephone wires. At the end of August, our feathered summer friends the swallows gather to begin their big journey back to winter climes. It’s a beautiful sight. And sometimes the swallows on wires is a slightly bittersweet sight as it marks the end of summer and the coming of the dark part of the year.
The Gathering to Go print would make a lovely addition to your home. It would also make a great present for a nature lover.
You have three size options:
- A little postcard sized mounted print which will fit an 8″ x 10″ frame. The mount is ice white in colour and would look lovely in a plain black or dark wood frame. This size of print is ready to gift, to frame, and to display. It comes in a cellophane envelope to keep it clean and safe.
- An A5 sized print with no mount. That’s roughly 5.8 x 8.3 inches in size (or 148mm x 210mm). Perfect if you want to choose your own mount and frame.
- A larger A4 sized print with no mount. That’s around 8.3 x 11.7 inches (or 210 x 290mm).
It will be packaged carefully in a protective envelope to keep it flat for transit.
You’ll find another swallow print in our shop, with just a single bird against a white background.
about our prints
The print is digitally printed on lovely 210gsm archival paper. We use special pigment inks to ensure there is no fading over time.
The art prints are all drawn, scanned, printed & hand assembled in my studio in the Scottish Borders. The original drawings are done in pencil & watercolour. The drawings are inspired by the rich variety of the British countryside. We believe it is important that people feel connected with the fields, hedgerows and woodlands around them. Only by loving and enjoying the countryside can we learn to care for it.
