Ode To The Nightingale Linocuts

Prints illustrating 'Ode to the Nightingale' by John Keats. Please listen to the poem here. In this print I wanted to show Keats' desire to escape the weary world and follow the nightingale into the dark forests, full of unseen flowers at his feet, soft incense hanging upon the boughs and all the grass, thicket and fruit-trees are growing wild.
I have made two versions of the colour background, I think I will use the first print for the update of my website.
