The Old Man and The Heron is a beautiful print by Joanna Layla Illustration.

Created from a watercolour original this fine art giclee is printed on Hannemuhle German Etching paper.

This print measures 21 x 29.7cm and fits an A4 frame and mount.

All my illustrations start life in my sketchbooks inspired by life in London. I love running and one dawn run I was stopped in tracks as I saw an old man sitting on a bench feeding a Heron next to the water in Regent's Park. Herons are such magical, elusive birds and I had never seen one so close to a human. I couldn't stop thinking about this perfect meeting of man and bird, and created a series of images of which this print is one about the encounter. It was as if the heron was the man's animal spirit.

(The watermark will not feature on the print you buy - this is just to protect my illustrations).
