Further Flowery Fakery

14 Feb

Now that I’ve finished my Family Zoom painting, it’s back to finishing the fake flowers I started with Ed Sumner’s Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook a couple of Fridays ago. The original is a van Gogh and his work is really complex and multi-layered. Today I focused on the greenery and marigolds in the background, the spear-like leaves and a bit more dappled colour in the foreground. Plenty more to do, lots more colours to stipple on tomorrow. There’s more work to be done on the irises too.

If you fancy joining in with the Cheese and Wine Painting Club – or just want to drop in and see what happens, next week we’re faking a painting by the Fauve artist Andre Derain – more here.

 

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.
