The Upside-Down Boy

4 May

I started a little painting of my young relative today, working from a photograph, I drew onto primed canvas with a watercolour pencil and blended it with a fine round brush and water. It needs a bit of tweaking to get the likeness more accurate then I’ll play with my acrylic paints. He’s meant to be upside down – that’s the way he hangs 😀

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.
