New - Biscay Bonxie

Another print for the Biscay Bonxie series posted here in the past, this time full A1 page. The bird remains the same size, so I have extended the view of ocean surrounding it. I want to convey a sense of the vast, unforgiving space these birds occupy, which for me is the essence of their character and my wonder of them.
