Happy Little Fake

27 Oct

mountain final

I finished off the fake Bob Ross that I started painting on Saturday lunchtime with the Cheese and Wine Painting Club over on Facebook. Painter Ed Sumner chooses a painting each week for people to copy with his humourous and skilled tutoring. I don’t like the Bob Ross style if I’m honest, but I love watching him every evening during the week on BBC4. He’s so nice and relaxing and he’s also a very skilled painter, even if you don’t like his style.

I used Liquitex Heavy Body acrylic paints onto a cheap canvas from Wilkinsons and brushes from a Daler Rowney 10 piece set for acrylics. Those happy little trees were a pain to do! He makes it seem so easy on the telly.

 

 

 

 

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.

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

    Bloody hilarious. Ross is amazing. So relaxing as you say. An antidote to depression and loneliness. But identikit pictures? Still, my daughter went through a Bob Ross phase – lots of fake mountains, trees and reflections.

      Hahaha. Just doing it as a technical exercise lol 😀 Fair dos to Bob, he’s really good at technique. My sister loves his work so she had it for her birthday – I get sibling brownie points now!

      Thanks Helen – Bob is very good at technique and I learnt a lot about handling a palette knife with this one.
