Serigraph (silkscreen) Commission in progress
In the photo at the right, you are seeing the upper third of the image area -- at this stage the rest of the image area is still just the white paper. In this photo there are two colors: The purplish sky (pulled first) and the lighter bluish tone beneath where the thunderhead will be. Where these first two colors overlap it has the effect of creating a third color. I masked out the remainder of the image area, including the far ram (seen here as white.)
Photo at the above is at the five color stage. The thunderhead is starting to take on a nice decorative shape.
If you have any questions about my process up to this point, please feel free to email me or, if you've accessed this posting via my Facebook page, then please leave comments/questions there. I will try to reply in a timely manner.
