My retro summer screenprint features a marina full of breezy white sailboats, fluttering bright red flags and an airy effortless palm tree against aqua blue. There's lots of bold, confident, balanced linework in this print, contrasting with the flat background shapes inspired by mid-century illustration.
I drew this inky scratchy sketch in San Diego, California. I enlarged the drawing and had a film positive made, one for each color, so I could silkscreen print it by hand in happy, nautical hues.
I used fine artist grade acrylic paints from Daler-Rowney UK on recycled, hydro-powered cardstock from America's oldest family-run paper mill.
