Finally Finished Faking Magritte’s “Son Of Man”

8 Dec

Son of man final

Finally finished faking the “Son Of Man” by The Belgian Surrealist artist René Magritte that I started last Friday with the Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook. It’s surprising how complex it is. The composition is simple but the paintwork is very subtle and detailed. I could do a bit more work on it, to make the paintwork more refined and polished, but I think I’ve learned what I wanted and it’s time to stop. Here are the stages below, using Liquitex Heavy Body acrylic paint onto a cheap Wilko’s 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.

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

    That’s pretty cool. Love seeing someone else’s progress shots, especially when they are so different from the way I would have approached it. Your way worked out perfectly!

      Thanks Alli, but I have to give credit to the online tutor, Ed Sumner. He is so very good 😀

    Good job Rose.. I always thought this was such an interesting painting of his and you’ve done it justice.
