Salmon wood engraving

I found a photograph taken by Thomas Peschak of a salmon underwater which was so beautiful it inspired me to create this wood engraving. Maybe I will get the opportunity to photograph some of the Tyne underwater too at some point!

I am currently engraving the first authentic Tyne Salmon portrait. I photographed her at the Kielder hatchery. She was scarred and bashed from her journey upstream.
