Just one more layer?

'Park', one-off Silkscreen print, 210X297mm

It's a constant creative battle to resist screening another layer of ink before it's too late and the magic becomes lost. Keeping going just to see isn't as easily remedied as punching the 'apple+z' keys in Photoshop. My unregimented and somewhat cackhanded approach to silkscreen leaves me with little memory of how a piece began or why and where it ended. I guess in the words of fellow printmaker James Brown, "this is where the Magic happens".
