Oceanside Screen Print

This semester I've been taking a silk screen class at Angels Gate Cultural Center. I've been doing fake silk screening at home for quite a while but this is the first time that I've used real equipment and not my cheep embroidery hoop/ modge podge method that I use at home. This is the first print that I made. It's taken from a picture of the Three Arch Rocks Wildlife Sanctuary from the beach in Oceanside, OR. The first technique that we learned was using stencils that you cut out an tape to the screen. Next we are going to use screen filler and finally we will get to do photo emulsion.

Wow! Incredible print. Where do you draw your inspiration from? Perhaps a handsome boyfriend brings thoughts of the beach to your mind?
