Screenprinting at home

I am still trying to perfect the art of screenprinting at home, using a screen and stencils. I wanted to do something based on my hometown of Hebden Bridge, in the hope that I will get a little collection together.

I mixed my inks and made lots of stencils. However I always struggle with exactness of printing and instead of tracing each stencil from a master drawing...I kind of guessed (bad move). So my print was a bit all over the place. Here is the redeemed version, with some hand painting over the top (to fill in the gaps!). Which I do like.

So maybe printing and painting combined is the solution for me!
