I'm impressed by the color blending you've done here with your halftones. Any chance you could supply larger views to show you did it? Usually my attempts at doing that fail, so I'd be interested to see how you did it.
It is fairly straight forward.
In screen printing, you want to print darker colors on top of lighter colors to get good coverage. With that in mind I painted blue on the layer above yellow.
then, on a new 50% opacity layer, using the same blue, painted on top the yellow.
Same deal the the red- on a new 50% opacity layer, using red, I painted on top the blue.
The result looked like this
tgentry wrote a great tutorial that should help you with turning this into halftones
This was the result
it's also worth noting that I had all of the layers for the puddle in a group with a layer mask the shape of the puddle. That way I didn't have worry about how the colors overlapped and could work pretty quickly.
