Here’s another screen print, based on an ocean scene with influences from Papua New Guinea carvings and patterns. I made several sketches before settling on the final design.
The first image is the final sketch on which the print was based. I scanned it, cleaned it up and did colour separations on the computer. Two stencils were exposed, allowing me to make a 2 colour variable edition.
The final image uses a colour blend on one layer to give another variation.
I currently have one available in my Artfinder shop.
Thanks for looking!
You can turn almost any image into a photo stencil, but simple black and white images make it easy to produce a good stencil.
I then traced it digitally and printed it onto tracing paper. You can use tracing paper or acetate as your ‘film positive’ to expose a screen.
Here are the final prints.
