The Gloucester Hole

22 Aug

I sat on the bank of the River Wye today, in Wales, looking across at England. The river forms the border in the town of Chepstow and Husb and I did a day trip and ended up there. I had a bit of a scribble en plein air on my Khadi paper sketchpad with Daler Rowney Artists’ Soft Pastels. It’s an impressionistic drawing, because the pastels are big and chunky and the paper has a very rough surface. That small dark patch on the limestone cliffs opposite is a cave called the Gloucester Hole. The river is very brown and muddy just here but it’s a gorgeous little town and river bank.

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.
