This linoprint is made up of 2 blocks. Because of the way I work I often don't produce a complete run of prints which are all identical. The temptation is always to experiment, especially with colours. This is why I mark them with "EV" to specify that the edition is a variable edition. The second print of Curious Blackbirds is in a light grassy green, which for some reason is quite tricky to capture photographically, so keep in mind that the colour might be slightly different in real life.
Every print is hand pulled by me, and therefore proudly shows the various marks left from the rough surface of the Lino block, which furthermore give the piece of artwork that unique handmade quality that only Lino prints have. This is all part of the beauty of the medium and why I love Lino printing.
