Mugshot Update

1 Mar

Husb and I have been doing a bit more work on our mugshots aka slow selfies aka self-portraits. We’re turning out to look like a right pair of criminals 😀 We’re working from life, not photos, so we have to concentrate really hard and this is what we look like when we concentrate really hard. I’m standing above the mirror, looking down, so there’s a lot of foreshortening, which I like, although it’s not a flattering POV, up yer nose 😀 We both have one or two sessions more to work on them, it’s a long process, building up the layers and getting the details right.

We started these at a self-portrait painting workshop about a week ago, led by the fabulous Welsh artist Tomos Sparnon and hosted by the most excellent GS Artists in Swansea. They have a programme of Zoom art sessions coming up over the next few months – click here for information on their next one.

As it’s Saint David’s Day, Dydd Gwyl Dewi Sant, here in Wales I made Welsh cakes, on a traditional iron griddle or bakestone, maen in Welsh. They won’t last long .

 

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.
