Happy Day sees a couple dancing in the street. This celebratory image is a 'fiesta' set in my home town in southern Spain.

A colour silkscreen print is created by building up an image with several layers of individually printed colours. This process is called colour separation. Each colour has its own ‘positive’ which is made on acetate or tracing paper (see photos for reference) which is then exposed to a UV light with a screen coated in photo-sensitive emulsion.
