The weeks fly by! It’s Faking Friday with the Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook again. This is my 19th fake, but the club has been running longer, started by the artist Ed Sumner to give people something to do during lockdown. Ed asks for contributions from those that can afford to chip something in and so he can keep the sessions free for those who can’t, which is lovely.
Today we copied a Monet, “Cliffs At Etretat”. As usual, I learnt a lot and the way I handle paint is improving all the time. I need to spend another hour or two on this over the weekend, adding more layers of delicate colours in dots and dashes, like Monet would have.
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.
