gipsy woman

gipsy womanThis is the result of an assignment i got last week. It's silkscreen printing, but the first model for this print was 1 sheet of A4. So the first layer was one rectangle of pink with three tiny white spots which i covered with emulsion. The second layer, the yellow was the brushed away with emulsion, followed by the red and finally the dark gray.
This technique was so different of the one i normally use, prepare screens for every color only for the location where the colour should be.
After printing the red however the poster started to live and i'm pleased with the result, especially because it's not something i would produce when printing my own work.
The emulsion however is just to thick to really apply exactly at the spot you want it so the result will look like this one, a bit messy.

2 colour silkscreen print done for the course of the SKVR. Again I'm pleased with how it came out. The yellow on the print is a bit more mustard colour which is really vibrant. Next week a quicky which I hoped to do tonight as well, but I was a couple of minutes short. After that I'll do a more complex four or five colour print which will take a couple of weeks to complete.

Also available as screenprint.

Today i finally finished my first slik screen print. As a starting point i used a photo i took in febrauary. Then i split the image into two single color images which both got printed onto a transparent and then the fun starts.
I have done this kind of printing ages ago and i forgot how fun this was, and how frustrating it can be to get your models right. But with every transparent produced it's getting better. This one comes in a small serie of nine prints.
