More Scrapings

scrapings 2

I was brought up thrifty, some might say frugal. One of the sayings I heard most when I was a kid was “waste not, want not” and I still live by that. So when I paint, any pigment left on the palette at the end is scraped off with a palette knife and scraped onto some of my lush leftovers papers. I dont’ know what, if anything, I’ll do with these scrapings but it’s good practice at using a palette knife and gives me some ideas for colour combinations. The paint is Liquitex Heavy Body and the paper is a very heavy hand-made Khadi.

 

 

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.
