Oh So Close

Klimt 9a

I’ve been working on this fake of Klimt’s “Woman In Gold – Portrait Of Adele Bloch-Bauer” for ages on and off. I started it during a Zoom painting tutorial with the painter Ed Sumner about 2 months ago and it’s about time I finished it. But it’s so absorbing and you could just keep on adding more and more detailing. I bought some metallic gold and silver pens today and had a go with those, instead of breaking my paints out. The pens are much quicker, but I’ll still need to do a bit more painting as I don’t have a bronze/copper pen. Her face is sketched in, needs a little bit more attention and then I think I’ll work it up with colour pencils as it’s so tiny I don’t think I’ll be able to do it well in paint. I’m so close to finishing now though.

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.
