Skull And Roses

1 Nov

Skull 1

I’ve been practicing my painting skills with the Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook, every Friday afternoon. This week our tutor, Ed Sumner, added an extra session on Saturday inspired by Halloween and Día de Muertos. It included a very thorough and useful instruction on how to draw a skull from scratch.

We started in pencil and then permanent marker pen before splashing very thin paint at random over the canvas. It was carnage – so much cleaning up to do after! It was exhilarating to be so free though. After the splashing about we learnt how to do roses. All very useful. I used Liquitex Heavy Body acrylic paint onto a stretched and primed canvas.

 

 

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.

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

      My 21 year old niece wants it for her bedroom. It takes all sorts 😀
