This monochromatic work is my take on the process of screen printing. My hand-cut image masks are pretty conventional. It was the process of how I added layers of color, was the spin that I put on it.
After masking out only the areas that would be highlights, I laid down a layer of transparent ink over the most of the image. Darker colors were then created by overprinting areas with more opaque ink mixtures. With a handful of passes, I could create a number of different shades. A side benefit was that registration issues were minimized by printing smaller areas of color on top of larger areas. I didn’t have to be as concerned about matching edges.
The process focused more on exploring experimenting with colors and color opacity than rendering an image.
