Diawl Abertawe / The Swansea Devil

22 Oct

painting 3

 

I did some sketches from the Swansea Devil recently, down at Swansea Museum. Today I drew him onto a piece of prepared MDF board and started painting in a Pop Art style. I like Pop Art and I think it suits him because he’s got that sort of look about him. The sculptor has hewn and painted the wood very simply and boldly.

 

 

I prepared the board with a couple of coats of acrylic gesso and I’m using Liquitex acrylic paints which I’ll build it up in thin glazes.

 

 

I love drawing and I really enjoyed doing these sketches; painting, to me, is a bit like colouring in, the artistry for me comes in the drawing and the concept.
