On the edge of the herd, looking outward… just Watchful

This was my first screenprint, made at Fife (Dunfermline) Printmakers’ Workshop. This image, with the mood it represents, continues to mean a lot to me.

I did not seek to show a known species, but rather to portray a representative ceratopsian type of dinosaur.

I had it scanned into digital form by this local company, who were very helpful to me as a beginner.. giving excellent service and value for money.

Some more background, if you wish:
The intent toward such an image was in my mind for some time, then (in the Print Workshop itself) occurred ‘that special moment’ to sketch it into reality.. a tiny ballpoint-pen sketch, a few inches long, capturing my idea. It was a process then of enlargement and further detailing, and – learning the steps of screenprinting – of preparing a screen to overlay successive colours in selected areas. There were decisions to be made all along the way. I chose to reverse the image relative to my initial sketch: it just felt better facing to the right.
