Sunflowers Or Sea Urchins?

6 Mar

I carried on with this copy of one of van Gogh’s famous sunflower paintings. He did about eight of them and this one has a lush blue background. There are two different types of sunflower in the vase and when you get up close to the painting, the lower ones look a bit like sea urchins. They’re definitely the hardest to paint. At the moment mine look like exceptionally hairy sea urchins, while Vincent’s are a lot more spiny, so that’s my challenge, learn how to make paint look spiny. That’s all 😀

 

 

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.

    There is the London Sunflowers one on loan in Canberra at the moment. I haven’t yet had a chance to sketch it, but it is on my list.
