Finished Faffing With Vincent’s Vessels

30 Apr

I finally finished copying van Gogh’s “Fishing Boats on the Beach at Saintes-Maries” that I started a couple of weeks ago in a Zoom tutorial with the painter Ed Sumner. This is the 47th fake I’ve painted since the first lockdown started just over a year ago. Not bad considering I’m a scribbler and printmaker, not a painter. I would never have thought I’d have taken to painting so well, I’m really loving it. I find drawing and printmaking very demanding, but this painting lark is so much fun – it’s relaxing me. Here are some of the stages of the painting below.

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.
