Checking My Tones

9 Jun

I’ve spent the past couple of hours on the second part of Ed Sumner’s Zoom tutorial, painting Edouard Manet’s “Bar At The Folies Bergere”. Ed suggested using the wonders of modern technology to take a digital photo in black and white to check the tones of our paintings and compare with the original (he provided a black and white copy as well as a full colour one for the tutorial). It’s a really good idea. I’ve nearly finished – just another couple of hours of faffing …… Anyway, it’s late, I’m tired. Nos Da. Good Night xxx

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.
