Yesterday was a new day in the printing studio of Pål Gunnæs.
I'm slowly getting the hang of the screen printing process, and I'm loving it more every day. The more I work with a new medium, the more I understand it and see it's possibilities and limitations.
I find it interesting that I like the limitations of a new medium as much as I like the possibilities. In the case of screen printing I love the fact that I can't use the approaches I normally use to build volume in an artwork - the screen print does not invite to use various values and to blend transitions. This makes the process challenging to me, I have to work really hard to make my brain adapt to these new limitations and it makes the process so much fun!
Yesterday I made two new prints and I'm happy with both of them. The botanical is printed in two different colors - the blueish grey on the photo above and black - and the top photo is also printed in two colors. It's a very appealing aspect of screen print that you can vary the colors as much as you choose.
