The Masked Model

23 Oct

Tonya 10 min

This is the 10 minute pose I did at last night’s life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop. Our masked model is fabulous, such a great personality and that shows in her poses – mind you, all our models have loads of personality. Life models are the unsung heroes of the art world. I used black, white and sanguine conté crayon onto black paper, size A2.

 

 

 

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.
