The second of my two wider screenprint ideas. Starting this tomorrow!

Thursday, 24 November 2016

I am delaying my new ideas until the new year sadly, I was just getting excited! A commission has come up and I felt I had to do it...
So; I'm now working on two wider pieces. I'll be making ten of each, so some will be available to buy. They will be 85 x 47cm.  I'm hoping to get them done in the next four weeks. Liking this so far, I'll be incorporating painted and drawn stencils. The one above has sixteen colours, which will all be layered separately by hand from my hand-drawn stencils.

Working today in the screenprinting studio. I decided I needed to do some experimenting and by chance made a great discovery when overlaying a colour! I have a new direction.....

Six in the series. All from small editions and all printed and made completely by hand. They all start off as drawings and my stencils are hand drawn too. I love the textural appearance and the combination of geometry and the drawn mark.
I worked out that I have hand applied 78 colours on all of these prints together!
