Copying, Creativity, Cheese And Wine

18 Apr

I’m carrying on faking this Monet, “Cliffs At Grainval”, but it still needs more work. Not a lot, just a bit more faffing should do it. I started it on Friday with Ed Sumner’s Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook. He’s been running it weekly since lockdown began over a year ago and it’s grown so much with hundreds of people joining in every week to copy a painting by a famous artist. I recently read an article in Artsy about how copying art actually increases creativity, which is good news. Here’s a link if you want to read it.

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.
