Green Lady’s Yellow Frock

23 Mar

I’ve nearly finished the copy of Vladimir Tretchikoff’s “Green Lady” that I started a couple of weeks ago. I think her head is just about done now, so today I did a lot of work on the yoke of her dress. It’s an elaborate embroidered silky fabric and I’ve never painted anything like this before. I think I’m getting there, just a bit more work on the finer details and I’m done. I started this in a Zoom tutorial with Ed Sumner who runs the Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook. And after wards, I made a plum tarte tatin for teatime 😀

 

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.
