A Thick Border

31 May

Here’s another 30 minute pose from last week’s life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop. I’m working directly onto the paper (heavyweight vintage) with ink (home-made walnut husk) without mapping the drawing with a pencil first. The result isn’t as accurate but it’s pushing me out of my comfort zone, which is a good thing. I’m getting to like painting a thick border around the figures, I’ve been doing it a lot lately.

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.

    Nice work, and especially nice the fact that you’re making your own inks….that’s getting down to basics.

      Thanks Hansi. I’ve got a load of walnuts rotting in the shed as we speak 😀

    I am really enjoying your thick line. It’s providing a lovely negative shape to your work.

      Thanks Leonie. I’m using it fairly early in the drawing process which makes me look at the whole thing differently 🙂
