Colour Variation

The colours are represented as naturally as possible in the images, but please be aware of the limitations of digital imagery and colour.

Different computer monitors can display the same image in a very different way as everyone’s monitor is set up differently i.e. contrast, brightness, saturation.

Original Lino Prints

Each lino print is an original piece of art and this can lead to slight variations in colours.

Due to the nature of lino printing there are small differences in the fit of colours which make each print a unique work of art.

Reproduction Prints and Greetings Cards

While I go to every effort to ensure my reproduction prints and greeting cards match the colours of the original paintings, there are limitations between the colours available as paints and inks and the digital printing process. My reproduction prints and greetings cards are printed by a third-party printer, so there can be slight variations to the colours from each print run or through available papers.
