The One Full Hour

17 Jun

We have a tea break half way through the 3 hour life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop. Before the break we do a series of short poses but then in the second half we have just one full-hour pose. I have mixed feelings about these. There’s a lot to be said for having some time to work on measurement and detail but these longer poses lose the immediacy of the quicker drawings. I used black, sanguine and white conte crayon onto a heavy textured black vintage paper.

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.
