Finally Finished Faking Frida

11 Apr

I finally finished faking Frida! I started this weeks ago on a Zoom tutorial with Ed Sumner of the Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook. The original is a modern painting by an artist called Nettsch. I need more practice with foliage and birds, they were much harder than the figure. It’s painted in Liquitex acrylic onto stretched canvas.

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.

    Really good job with Frieda…that was a lot of work! But it definitely doesn’t look “over” worked.

      Thanks Alli. It was those pesky parrots that took the most time 😀
