Metamorphosis

Just as a tadpole metamorphoses into a frog these screen prints have been evolving over the last two weeks to reveal a little Costa Rican, Red-eyed Tree Frog (Agalychnis callidryas).

I made a bit of a boob with this first set of prints, can you guess what it was?

This next series of prints should make my error a bit more obvious…

The orange is nowhere near as fluorescent in real life, the iphone doesn’t have a white balance function and seems to struggle with some colours.

Have you spotted the difference?

I used the negative instead of the positive stencil on the first layer of the first print, this made all the areas that should have been white a pale green. I cursed my stupidity at the time, even after I had written a note to myself about which stencil to use, but looking at them now I rather like the more subtle balance of colours in the first print, what do you think?
