And The Cat Came Back ….

18 Feb

This was the very first painting I did with The Cheese And Wine Painting Club on Facebook, way back in May last year, a few weeks after the painter Ed Sumner started it up to relieve the boredom of the first lockdown. Two lockdowns and almost a year later, it’s still going because the pandemic is still with us. I was really nervous doing this copy of Matisse’s Cat And Goldfish as I hadn’t done any painting since my first year in art college back in the 1970s. My first attempt took me ages as I didn’t have any confidence in what I was doing, although I liked the finished painting. But I thought I’d try it again, now I have had 9 months of practice and done nearly 40 paintings. I’m much more confident and it’s going faster than first time round. I did more than half of it in under an hour a couple of days ago and I think I’ll have it finished tomorrow. Here’s a timelapse video of it so far.

 

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.
