Faking Friday Flowers

5 Feb

It’s faking Friday again with Ed Sumner’s Cheese and Wine Painting Club over on Facebook. I so enjoy these weekly sessions that Ed has been running since the first lockdown in March 2020. I’m learning loads about painting as well. This week it’s a van Gogh, one of his paintings of irises. It’s using a lot of paint (Liquitex Heavy Body acrylic) but that’s van Gogh for you. I’ll need to do a couple more hours over the weekend to get it finished.

 

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.

    By the way, should you ever decide to try slow-drying acrylics I just found out that you can get Golden’s “Open” acrylics in tubes in the UK at Jackson’s and Ken Bromley Art Supplies. Nice start on the irises.

      Thanks Phil. It was enough to get to grips with the proportions of the face, sorted it out on the big painting now 😀
