The Red Cape sees a matador posturing with his cape. Unbeknownst to him, a bull is behind him, peeping over the roof tops. This print is set in our local white hilltop Spanish village in Cadiz province.

This print is a 6 colour screen print. It is printed on Somerset tub size, a heavyweight 300 gram handmade paper from St Cuthbert's Mill in Somerset. The print is in a limited edition of 25 and signed 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.
