Faking Vincent

wheat 4

This afternoon’s Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook was about van Gogh and this lovely painting of a wheatfield and cypress trees. The session is an hour and a half but I rarely finish in that time. I reckon I have perhaps a couple more hours on this, so that’s something for the weekend.

I use Liquitex Heavy Body acrylic paints and Daler Rowney brushes for acrylics onto a primed canvas from Wilkinsons. The painting club has been running every week since the beginning of the first UK lockdown in March. Painter Ed Sumner is a great teacher and it’s suitable for all ability levels. Ed asks people who can afford to make a donation through Paypal or Eventbrite so that people who can’t afford to pay can join in, which is a really nice thing to do – he has to earn a living after all. Ed’s next Friday class is Rousseau’s “The Mandrill” – please click here to take a look.

 

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.
