Screen prints: Do you ever think about what’s out there?

chris bourke art uk artist lino print linocut artist screen printsSorry for the lack of updates here. As mentioned in the last post, I do regular, usually daily updates on Instagram.

Despite this strange year I’ve been continuing to work on and release new lino prints and some t-shirts too, and have had some screen prints made of my Do You Ever Think About What’s Out There? lino print.

The screen print uses a colour fade technique so that the stars on the print fade from red to orange to yellow, this technique also means that each print is a little different.

 

There are two versions to choose from, the other has a blue to purple to pink colour fade. Both these prints are available from my Etsy shop here.

New Work Sept 2019

New work will be released tomorrow and available from my online Etsy shop – shop.chrisbourkeart.com

Get Up – one of my most popular prints – this is a screen print version of the original lino print. Each screen print was printed on heavy watercolour paper and then painstakingly painted my myself, layering the watercolour to create the desired finish. You can watch a short video of me painting these on my Instagram account HERE

These prints will be released tomorrow 28th September. For more details on these prints and to buy, visit my Etsy Shop.

Also released on the 28th: Do You Ever Think About What’s Out There? – a series of one off Lino Prints that have been individually hand finished with iridescent powder. This is a delicate, time consuming process ensuring that each print is truly unique. You can watch a short video of some of the process HERE.

Around a dozen of these one off pieces will be available though my Etsy store. More images, details and buying options HERE.
