Almost There ….. Not Quite …..

24 Dec

pearl 5

Yesterday evening I joined in with a Zoom tutorial run by the painter Ed Sumner. I’ve been following Ed’s Cheese and Wine Painting Club throughout lockdown, copying a work by a famous artist every Friday lunchtime, but this was a more intense teaching session about Vermeer’s “Girl In A Pearl Earring”. We did a lot in 2 hours but there’s still some more to do. The likeness is almost there, but not quite. Her cheeks are too fat, her jawline needs firming up, the shadows on her skin need to be more subtle and there’s a tiny bit of tweaking to do around her eyes. I’m enjoying this painting stuff on the quiet 😀

 

 

 

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.
