Uncle Bryn In Gouache

I finished this gouache portrait sketch of the Welsh actor Rob Brydon, in his incarnation as Uncle Bryn from Gavin and Stacey. It’s for the GS Artists / 9-to-90 Creative Community Art Festival in Swansea. Last year the subject was Michael Sheen – I did him in embroidery. I think I got a better likeness with Michael Sheen, I found him easier to draw. This year my lockdown challenge has been to improve my painting skills and I’ve never done much wth gouache before – it’s lovely. I really like it. Here are the stages I went through for this painting. I started it at Tomos Sparnon’s art workshop at GS Artists a couple of weeks ago.

 

 

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.

    I really like this one too. It’s just complex enough to hold the viewer’s interest without looking overworked.

      Thanks Alli. I was just reaching that point where I thought I should stop 😀
