Finally Finished Vincent’s Bedroom

29 Jun

I finally finished faffing with van Gogh’s painting of his bedroom in Arles. I started it a few weeks ago on one of painter Ed Sumner’s Zoom tutorials. It’s a lot more complex than it looks. Vincent’s brushwork is multi-layered and his composition, although it looks simple, has some difficult distorted perspective. Of course I can still see loads that could be improved upon, but I need to stop and carry on with something else. I painted in Liquitex heavy body acrylics onto a stretched and primed canvas. Here are some of the stages of the apinting.

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.
