Faking Friday, Murky Monet

22 Jan

Waterlilies 5

What number is this fake? I think it’s 34. That’s a lot of painting, paint and canvasses since I started back last Spring with Ed Sumner’s Cheese and Wine Painting Club over on Facebook. Every Friday lunchtime is a different painting by a famous artist to fake in an hour and a half. I’ve never finished and always have an hour or two more work to do. But that’s fine, I’m learning so much about painting. This week is one of the water lily pieces by the Impressionist artist Claude Monet, I think it’s the sixth of his so far. I’ll do some more work on it over the weekend, it’s a bit murky, I want to lighten it.

 

 

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.

    Aw gee, I love it murky! But that’s just me. I also like the purple tint!

    I will see if I can find my close up photos of the waterlillies I have taken. Some are very scarcely painted. Lots of impasto.
