Screen Printing

Ocean Scene

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!

Working on Prints

I’ve been working on some new print ideas lately. In the gallery below you can see the initial sketch for a lino cut. Then someone drew my attention to an invitation for submissions for a screen print. The print can use up to 3 colours so I scanned it and work on some colour ideas. Having settled on 3 colours I decided to digitally trace the sketch to create the final design.
