Making an image for printing onto fabric

Today we worked on images for the screen printing we will do next week. Initially I wanted to print an image of the three year old me in my bridesmaid dress but it became clear that the image was not suitable for this kind of printing due to the lack of contrast. I therefore created a new image using carbon and tracing paper and a photograph I took whilst living in Cyprus.

The photograph is like many I took whilst walking in Cyprus. This one is of the road leading up out of the valley beside the village of Esentepe / Ayios Amvrosios. The building at the top is like many of the partially completed houses in the area.
