Faffing With Vincent

15 Jun

I’m still faffing with this copy of Vincent van Gogh’s “Bedroom In Arles”, it’s a lot more complex than it looks at first, as are all his paintings. Although the composition is relatively simple, the complexity is in the layers and layers of paint piled thickly onto the surface of the canvas. I love it but it takes ages to do. I’m using Liquitex Heavy Body acrylic paints onto stretched canvas and I began this in one of Ed Sumner’s Zoom painting tutorials.

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.
