Finished The Upside Down Boy

18 May

I’ve finished the little painting of my young relative who likes to hang upside down. It’s a great pose to paint and I did a lot of the process working from the source photos upside down too, as I find it easier to capture a likeness that way. Here are the steps along the way. I used Liquitex Heavy Body acrylic paint onto a stretched gessoed 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.
