Here are the two quick warm-up poses from last night’s life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop. The left is a 5 minute pose, the right a 10 minuter. I used white and sanguine conte crayons onto a very velvety heavy weight black paper. I don’t know where I got it from, I’ve been given lots of paper over the years when elder artists have closed up their studios or died; I found it in a draw in my plans chest so, waste not want not, eh?
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.

20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.
