Following on from my initial experiments with the monoprinting with the screenprints, I decided to do a small series of prints to investigate further what happens with the colours. I ended up doing around 30 prints of circles. Using a number of background layers and then overprinting these with a set of second colours it resulted in a whole matrix of possibilities.
Below are a few of the results. It has been a fascinating process because it has revealed some of the potential depths of colours that can be achieved with overprinting that do not come out in the same way with a single print. It opens up a whole new range of possibilities for working with this approach which I’m looking forward to trying in the New Year.
