The new silkscreen print is here. It’s called French Poppies and is a 5 color print made here in Copenhagen. It’s available through my webshop here.
I have been wanting to do a limited edition print for quite some time now. I think last time I did a silk screen print was in 2015. Since then the list of mails has gotten longer and longer and I started promising people that there would be a new print in the beginning of this year. Well..Its now july and here we are. The silk screen print is here a bit delayed just like everything else.
In June I went to France to show some new paintings in a little Church. That's when I started to sketch out this silk screen print with a little vase with a french landscape inside. I like the way flowers look in the evening and the blue light does it's thing to them. Changing all the greens to greyish blues. When I came back to Copenhagen I headed out to the silk screen studio and mixed the different blues used on this print. The print has five layers. The lightest blue was the first layer that covered the whole vase and flowers. Then a darker cobalt looking blue went on top of the lightblue color leaving only the bulbs and the little moon light blue. Then the dark indigo blue went on top and then the very dark blue stars that you can see in the background. The notes, "Rochebaudin France" went on as the very last and 5th layer.
There are some process shots in my last blogpost for the curious mind.
thanks for reading all this. I hope you will have a great summer.
all the best
now goodbye for now :)
