Dodo by night...





Truth be told I've probably been putting off posting images of my Dodo screen print from last weeks introductory workshop. I screwed up on my colour mixing for the background grey and the foreground greens (why did I end up going so dark for the grey and too light on the green... I'm still not sure...call it a moment of chroma madness...) and my registration of the screens was always a little off, no matter how I wrestled with it. Sill, in line with the positive attitude I'm determined to keep from here on in the day was all about learning and I really did get a great overview on things. I just love the screen printing process and hope to do more as soon as possible. I also cannot recommend enough the excellent folks at Snap studio in Bristol. If you get the chance to, you must stop by and buy. The print work they sell is absolutely fantastic! Many thanks in particular go to the hardworking and inspirational screenprinting wonder that is Emma Peacock who showed us all the ropes on the workshop.

You did a great job Matt, the Dodo looks brilliant. Don't worry about the grey, it might not have been the exact shade you intended, but it's still a successful piece.

I'd like to add my thanks to Emma Peacock, she was a very good teacher. And thanks to you for coming to Bristol, it was a top weekend.

Hey Matt, fantastic work! I love your color choices and the subject matter is perfect. I know what you mean, I've been screening for years, and still haven't figured out the whole color thing. I wouldn't worry, though-only you know what you had in mind!
