Developing Screen Prints

I am about to create my first collection of screen prints with Ben Dodge at the Factory Kendal. I have started to layer up my drawings and paintings in photoshop to work out colour and composition possibilities – exciting! Here are a couple of my ideas so far…  

Still got the Blues…and pink and gold

The latest in my series of Delphinium floral paintings has been created with a mixed media approach of using watercolours enhanced with gouache, inks and pastels. I have just bought my first sweet peas so keep an eye out for these appearing in the next few paintings!   The Sweet Peas posing in front of one of the ‘delph’ paintings

Pastel to Pixels…

Inspired by spring flowers today I have been using yummy pastels. I am now avoiding making the dinner and helping with the homework by developing my work in photoshop!
