Work in progress; textile screenprint, ‘Birds and mammals battle’.

bird and bear sceneThis is a large scale drawing I’m working on at the moment for a textiles screenprint. It’s aprox 24x36cm and I’ll recreate the drawing as a screenprint in 3 different colours, possibly sorbet pink, black and silver on a fawn coloured cotton. I’ll then stretch the cotton over a canvas and the battle scene will be a print to hang. It’s hard to see the details in this print so I’ve added 3 close-ups of parts of the print below this entry.
I was inspired by paintings and tapestries of medieval battle scenes – something looking ornate yet with ghastly undertones. This one will be part of a series of such scenes.
