PORTRAIT OF A HOUSE

Finished print
Layers
A friend to keep me company while mixing inks
A few months ago, I was commissioned to make a small edition of screenprints of a family home that was recently sold after being in the family for over 50 years.  Using a reference photo, I drew up a master version, which I then based all seven colour layers off of.  It's a fairly labour intensive process to only make one print, but luckily the family wanted twelve in total.  As intimidating as it was trying to immortalize a place I've never seen in person, I enjoyed the challenge and hope another opportunity like that comes along soon!
