Here Come The Clouds

20 Mar

Here’s my latest fake, a cloud study by the British painter John Constable done yesterday at Ed Sumner’s Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook. Constable made about 50 oil sketches of clouds in 1821 – 1822 and many of his paintings feature spectacular skies. This has stronger colours than Constable’s and I might give it another coat of a thin white wash to knock the colour back a bit, but I really like the drama of these colours to be honest. Here are the stages of the painting.

 

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.
