The starting point for this work was a preparatory pencil drawing that had also led to a painting. The print evolved through a series of colour separations. One transparent layer, added at the final stage, united and softened the colour relationships and isolated some of the brighter pink and ochre slithers. Blended on the screen to create a gradation that darkened the bottom section of the print, this depth and was fundamental in creating the subtle mood of the final work.
