The Olive Market

A few years ago I visited Turkey and remember vividly the busy food markets full of energy, colour and promise. I really enjoyed using the creative and expressive technique of Screen Monoprinting for this project, drawing and painting directly onto the screen mesh.

 Working quickly and spontaneously I used charcoal to draw the olive containers and then painted on the colour before pushing the image through and onto paper.
