Lush Colours

2 Aug

Here’s the life drawing from last week’s session – a one hour pose. It took me a while to get into it – it’s late and after a day’s work so I’m usually really tired by then. But sometimes the tiredness frees me up a bit. I love the lush colours of my Daler Rowney Artist’s soft pastels. I’m using them on a fairly smooth paper, breaking the rules, because I like they way they spread into a rich swathe of colour when I rub them with my fingers. They almost become paint.

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.
