this is a series of 7 screen prints from my famous “backyard mermaid”. in this 7 copies éditions you can see 4 colors and black. you can see yellow, blue, green and orange but the only colors I used where blue, yellow and magenta.
I printed the blue and on the next step, while printing the yellow, I dropped some magenta in the yellow directly while printing and it quickly became orange and kept changing while I was printing (there is no yellow-orange alone in this series). I printed this mixture partially on the blue who rapidly became green.
if you’re lucky enough, in some copies of those edition, you still can see a fine blue outline under the green-orange scales and this, for me, is the magic of screen printing. is like seeing the squeegee traveling on the frame again.
