Done Tweaking

That’s it. I’ve done tweaking my fake version of “Girl With A Pearl Earring” by Johannes Vermeer. I could go on and on, tweaking and refining, but I think I’ve learnt as much as I can from this one, so onto the next. I was having trouble with the shading on the face but was given some good advice from a fellow art blogger, Alli Farkas, about using acrylic paint retarder and it worked. This is fake number 30, done weekly throughout lockdown with Ed Sumner’s Cheese And Wine Painting Club on Facebook on Fridays. It’s suitable for everyone and good fun – come and have a look 😀

 

 

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.

    It looks nicely soft without being undefined. Perfect mix of subtle yet focused. You definitely avoided a common downfall in which a painting looks like it was made in two different styles. This particular one could have easily pushed itself in that direction.
