Classic sandy beaches and historic monuments such as Whitby Abbey and Scarborough Castle, both visible in the prints respectively, make both of these towns well worth a visit. They are very different in character, just like the prints.
Each print has a couple of hand painted layers to them which makes them what's called a 'varied limited edition'. This simply means that though they are essentially the same, each print in each of the two editions has the subtle individuality which results from something hand painted. The hand painted bit is when I ink-up a lino block as normal, but then pick up a paint brush and paint into the ink before printing it onto the paper. If you look at my collection of lino prints, you'll see I often do this at some point in the process of making a print. Can't seem to keep my hands off paint brushes.
