The Last Pose Step By Step

17 Oct

Chrissy 60 mins 5

Here’s the final pose I did at this week’s life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop. It was about 50 minutes long and I was able to get into quite a bit of detail. I started with some squiggles in white conté crayon onto black paper, to map out the basic figure. Then I put flesh on the bones, so to speak, with sanguine conté crayon, building up the midtones and highlights. Finally, I went in with a black conté to do some refined line work.





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.
