17 People, 2 Dogs And A Cat!

1 Feb

I carried on with my big painting today, working in more of the building blocks of the images. Some of them are pretty spot on but some are really difficult to do as I can’t get my head around the distortion caused by the computer screens and I’m falling into the trap of painting what I think is there, not what is actually there. I’m getting better at it though. I didn’t stop to think how big a task this would be when I started but today I added up all the figures – 17 people, 2 dogs and a cat. Talk about throwing myself in at the deep end. I’m using Liquitex Heavy Body acrylic paint onto stretched canvas, with willow charcoal to sketch in the details.

 

 

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.
