(each print in this edition is slightly unique)
This desaturation printing method uses only one stencil (a rectangular field) and there are four separate colors printed individually. In this case, it uses the process colors Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black. Before each color is printed, graphite is used to draw loose line work into the screen. Water is then brushed onto the screen in the areas that are intended to be desaturated. When the ink is flooded and printed, the water dilutes those portions it was brushed into, lightening the value. Each print in this edition is unique, as shown in the progressive image above.
