Colour Overlap.

13 Feb
Two colour screen print: manhole covers.

A quiet but productive afternoon in Waun Wen community centre today, continuing with my screenprint series based on images of local manhole covers from original photographs by Melvyn Williams. I mixed Daler Rowney System 3 acrylic paint, Process Magenta, into screenprint medium and overprinted the Process Blue images I did a few days ago. Where the translucent colours overlap there are flashes of purple and lilac.

Screenprinting selfie

I was joined by our local councillor Hannah who is also an experienced screenprinter and she printed another set of manhole images in blue, on the floor behind us. I’m not used to taking selfies, this wasn’t my first attempt to get something half decent 😀

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the antique taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these vintage artefacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.

To buy my work on the Swansea Print Workshop site please click the image to the left.

20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.
