“Night Time Meeting”–My First Serigraph

Here’s my first Serigraph (screen) print, titled “Late Night Meeting”003 (1)
I start by painting with blue the area I want ink.

004
I paint red where I want to block the ink.

005
Wash the screen with cold water, and the blue dissolves, leaving the red as a stencil.

006
I mix my colors by hand…careful to make enough for all the prints…I don’t want to run out halfway through the printing!

007
The first layer is the lightest color – light blue.

008
After printing the first color, I block more of the existing stencil for the each layer of color.

Every time I change colors, the previous stencil is destroyed through the process.   There’s no turning back. If I ruin one, an edition of 12 becomes a edition of 11!

009
Here’s the second color…a sky blue.

Third layer, light brown013
Fourth color, turquoise

I haven’t mastered the art of lining up the different colors. (Remember, this is my first serigraph!)bluebird serigraph 014
so there is an offset to each print, making each one unique. all12
You can see detailed photos of the finished prints by clicking here.

I am selling them unframed for $60, signing and numbering them in the order they are sold.

So, if you want to be one of the first to pick one for your collection, do not wait!

Also, I’ll pay shipping to the U.S. for any purchases before 2011
