‘Bears in the Woods’ is a playful silkscreen print depicting a number bears going about their business in autumnal woods.

This 6 colour silkscreen is printed on Somerset Velvet, a heavyweight 300 gram handmade paper from St Cuthbert's Mill in Somerset, and is in a limited edition of 25.

A colour silkscreen print is created by building up an image with several layers of individually printed colours. This process is called colour separation. Each colour has its own 'positive' which is made on acetate or tracing paper (see photos for reference) which is then exposed to a UV light with a screen coated in photo-sensitive emulsion.
