I started creating these experimental paintings after my first screen-printing workshop in September. The class really got my ideas going...I started with a make-shift stencil that I made using cardboard. I painted onto the stencil then pressed the image of the watertank onto the surface -- repeating a few times using different colors. The layers built up and I'm in the process of adding more colors and textures.
