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.

To buy my work on the Swansea Print Workshop site please click the image to the left and to see the complete image.

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

    I wonder is this one destined for someone in particular Rose? or would you sell it?

      Oh this is for me. I’m not letting this one go – it’s one of my favourite paintings and phew …. such a lot of work. But Gustav Klimt took 4 years over his version! 😀
