Rock Pooling








I finished screen printing 'Rock Pooling' earlier this week, which is 9 colours! 
The most I've ever done... and ever will do I think!
This print is to go along side this one for Holmfirth Artweek.
I plan to do a third but in fabric as a collage and get lots of lovely texture in which I've tried to do on the sand here with layers of dots, scratches and cross hatching.

 Its been the hardest print I've ever done! but I've learnt lots from doing it which is all good!
This is Sonny, Sky and Lil Rock Pooling on Runswick bay, I'd love to know what you think:)
