Flower Head Prints

These are partly-monotype silkcreen prints. The first two passes, background and the shape of the figure are all the same. And then I painted details(face and flowers) on the screen, then squeegeed them. Pretty tedious process, I must say. The painting part takes a long time because water-based ink dries so quickly and clogs up the mesh. I had to wash the screen after every pass which was about 7 times on each one excluding the first two passes. Boo!

These ladies turned out the way I envisioned them though. Screen printing is in itself a tedious process anyway but most of the time pretty rewarding.
