Title: Digital Serigraph? Of Course! Why Not?

A Painter-print maker’s Creative Foray Into the Digital Medium.
Create digitally in layers of color-reminiscent of the serigraph. Apply all of the artist’s tool to render form, describe volume, light, color, distance in a landscape, the reflections in water. 
Think in terms of intaglio printmaking, lithograph, serigraph. Your composition might be referred to as a digital serigraph.
