Selling out, but in a good way

2 Sep

This painting, is “Charing Cross Bridge” by the 20th century Fauvist artist Andre Derain. It is part of my fundraiser for LATCH, The Children’s Cancer Charity. I love the colours and the liveliness of this painting. It was a joy to do but as with most paintings by the greats it was surprisingly complex.

Since the COVID19 lockdown began over a year ago, I have been painting every week with Ed Sumner’s live tutorials on the Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook. I have been asked many times if I would be willing to sell them. The idea is attractive but I don’t want to make money from copies. But as the lockdown has run on and on, I now have almost 50 copies of masterpieces and I’ve decided to sell some of them to raise money for charity.

I am selling this and nine other paintings with all the money going to a charity which does very important work to improve the lives of children suffering from cancer.

To see the rest of the paintings and how to buy them please click on this link or the picture. In the video below you can see me painting the whole thing in a mercifully speeded up all-action version of real life events. Of course my cat Sparta had to “help out” as well.
