I Took My Time

Klimt 10

At last I’ve finished painting the fake Klimt “Woman In Gold, Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer 1” that I started a few weeks back on an online tutorial with the painter Ed Sumner. I’ve put more into this than any of the other fakes I’ve done throughout lockdown – over 30 so far – but apparently Klimt spend 4 years on the original so I haven’t done too badly for a couple of months on and off. The original used loads of gold leaf but I had to make do with metallic acrylic paints (Liquitex) which are pretty good but a pain to photograph. I also did some of the finer line work with a gold metallic pen which looks great on the painting but is very prominent in the photo – never mind.

Ed Sumner runs the Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook on Fridays – it’s free or a donation if you can afford to. It’s a great way of getting through this interminable pandemic lockdown and there’s all sorts of people doing it, all ages, all ability levels and it’s fun. Come and join in. Next Friday we’re going to be faking a David Hockney.

 

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.

      Thanks Helen. It’s difficult to photograph because of all the metallic stuff, but never mind 🙂
