To brighten the day....


Take a bunch of buttercups and a clean Golden Syrup tin and use 
it as inspiration for a still life screen print....


... add a cool grey background,



add some warmer shading,


squeegee on some yellow,



then a bit more yellow,


some tin green,


some stems,


a little gold,


black,


white details,


some more shadow,


overlay of green details,


and then pop it in to the framers and,


it's all ready for Holmfirth Artweek!

This "Golden' print has been created to celebrate 50 years of the Holmfirth Artweek exhibition, 
championing the amazing creative talent in the Holme Valley in Yorkshire whilst raising funds for the wonderful Macmillan Cancer support. 

Macmillan do such amazing work, they were my bible when I was going through cancer treatment,  such a worth while cause. So go down to the Civic Hall in Holmfirth from the 3rd July to see some gorgeous artwork, amazing sculpture and support a fab charity at the same time. 
There's also the fabulous Holmfirth Artweek fringe to check out too!


To mark this fantastic golden anniversary artists have been asked to produce a piece of work on the theme of 'golden',

and this is my golden.

I've listed this print in my Etsy shop,
and I will be listing in my Folksy shop this weekend,

a bit of yellow to lift the general mood:)
