Orchid Screenprinted Monoprints

Recently I came across some old monoprints of orchids I made by using paper masks and painting direct onto a screen mesh; then pulling using a squeegee with either a clear gel medium or green paint. It is hard to tell from these images, but the last two orchids where you see a brown colour, that is in fact bronze paint, which from certain angles reflects light. All told rather a good effect I think, I must give it another go.
