Walnut Two Ways

25 Aug

I used my home made walnut ink with two different tools at life drawing the other evening. I did the one above with a traditional dip pen, although I used a brush to do the hair and the swirly bits down the bottom. I find dip pens hard to use at first, I always press too hard and scratch the paper. I did the drawing below with a thickish round brush. Much easier to use than the dip pen and much freer as well.

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.
