About this work of Art
‘Woodland Scene’ by Tim Southall.
Early morning sunshine shimmers in a tranquil woodland scene as two deer stroll undisturbed through the undergrowth. Often in my work I look to capture an atmosphere, a particular feel or fleeting moment, and in this case it is found in the woodland life. This 6 colour silkscreen by Tim Southall is hand printed on Somerset tub-sized, a heavyweight 310 gsm handmade paper from St Cuthbert’s Mill in Somerset, and is in an edition of 25.
A colour silkscreen print is created by building up an image with several layers of individually printed colours. This process is called colour separation. Each colour has its own ‘positive’ which is made on acetate or tracing paper (see photos for reference) which is then exposed to a UV light with a screen coated in photo-sensitive emulsion.
