Koi Carp - Varied Limited Edition Two Layer Linocut
Koi Carp is a Varied Edition, which means that although the same two print blocks are used to create the finished print (the two layers are printed on top of each other) that the edition will have variety within it. Each print is 'hand inked' so each print has different shades and tones within the print. Both layers have the ink individually rolled on to them in a different 'pattern' and the combinations and the translucency of the ink allows for the different tones, giving different 'watery' backgrounds and fish patterns each time.
So even though the same print blocks are used, each print will be different!
As they are different, each print is numbered in the gallery above - should you wish to purchase a print, please contact me and let me know the number of the print you wish to buy.
(You'll also notice a watermark has been added for the website images, please ask if you would like to see a print without the watermark).
If a certain print number has sold but you like the tonal qualities of that print number, please let me know and I will endeavour to print another one somewhere close! As mentioned before, each print truly is unique in it's colouring due to the process used.
Koi Carp is a limited print run of 30 prints. It is printed onto A3 160gsm paper with the centre print being A4 in size.
All prints are numbered and initialed.
Due to the nature of printmaking, each print may differ slightly from the ones shown in the pictures above.
