Faking van Gogh

19 Apr

And another bit of fakery! This time it’s van Gogh’s “Fishing Boats on the Beach (at Saint Marie)” from 1888. I’m about halfway through it. I love copying van Gogh, I’ve always loved his work, since I was a schoolkid, and it is joyous as well as instructive to do these paintings. I started it in a Zoom tutorial from Ed Sumner who runs the Cheese and Wine Painting Club every Friday 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.

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.
