Timed poses

Tonya 5 mins

At the life drawing group at Swansea Print Workshop we start with a few short timed poses to warm up and get the measure of our model. Here are the two five minute poses we began with – our model is terrific, she’s been with us for years.

Here’s one of the 30 minute poses done in willow charcoal onto vintage paper by WH Saunders.


A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these antique artifacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.

To buy my work on the Swansea Print Workshop site please click the image to the left and to see the complete image.

In this one, I combined snippets of a bird and discarded plastic with the image of a bug, part of the Museum’s fascinating vintage collection.

20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.
