Pueblo is an interpretation of the local hilltop village where I live in Spain. I have broken down the buildings into a pattern of cubic blocks. The feel, of this print, is intrinsically Spanish, reflecting much of the colour and structure that is so exciting about the country.

This 6 colour silkscreen is hand-printed on 300 gram handmade Somerset paper, is in a limited edition of 50 and signed on the front by the artist.

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.
