Layering Up

24 Jan

Zoom 2

I did a bit more work on the big painting I started yesterday. I’ve been improving my painting skills throughout the pandemic lockdown, joining in with Ed Sumner’s Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook on Fridays. It’s been a long process, lots of fun as well, and it’s given me the confidence to try something of my own. I’ve always done drawing and printmaking, painting is quite new for me, but I feel like I’m getting somewhere now.  One of the things I’ve learned is to build up a painting with layers, if I make a mistake I can paint over it, and not to be too precious.

 

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.
