A Change Of Paper

20 Nov

I’ve been working on black paper for a few weeks, in life drawing, but I ran out last night so I switched to some lovely old heavyweight handmade ivory paper that I was given a whle back. I carried on using the conté crayons though, in black, sanguine and white. The new paper completely altered my approach. On the black paper I was much freer and experimental but I have a more academic and precise approach with this new one. The texture and colour lends it a slightly Renaissancy look. Is that even a word? 😀

 

 

 

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.
