Passing On The Vintage

26 Nov

Here’s a 10 minute pose from last week’s life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop. I worked onto a heavy textured vintage paper – it doesn’t have a watermark so I don’t know the make. Over the past few years I have been given loads of vintage papers, and some tools as well, by relatives of elderly artists who passed away.

It’s kind to pass these thing on to other artists and it means that they will be used for what their original owners intended. I will have to have that conversation with my relatives so they’ll pass on my materials when I shuffle off this mortal coil.

 

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.
