Layers Of Faff

10 Mar

I’m still working on the fake JMW Turner painting, “Storm at Sea”, building layer upon layer, knocking the colour back with thin glazes of watery white and rubbing through to reveal some of the delicate colours beneath, all overlaid with thick gobbets of paint piling texture onto the surface of the canvas. All a bit of a faff but when you see his work in galleries, you realise how much paint has gone into – or onto – them. I started this last Friday at the Cheese and Wine Painting Club over on Facebook. Run by the painter Ed Turner, we copy a painting by a famous artist every week. The sessions are free or a donation for those who can afford it, and Ed’s been running them for almost a year now, to help us get through lockdown. Come and have a look 🙂

 

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.
