Wicked Foreshortening

16 Jun

Here’s a reclining pose from last week’s life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop. It’s got wicked foreshortening, which I love but I think it’s really hard to draw. I used white, sanguine and black conte crayons onto a lovely soft, textured vintage black paper. It was given to me by a friend from the studio of his late father and there’s no watermark so I don’t know the make. Pity, it’s gorgeous and I’d love to buy more.

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.
