Dapping The Sunflowers

16 Mar

I’ve been carrying on copying this vase of sunflowers by Vincent van Gogh today. It’s not easy. I keep checking back with the original and it’s clear that Vincent used many layers of thick paint applied in streaks and dashes with a brush. The lower sunflowers look like he was dapping the paint on with a palette knife as well, to raise the surface of the paint. It’s nearly there, just a bit more work to do.

I’m working from one of Ed Sumner’s videos from the Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook.

 

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.
