The Fat Seagull

23 Nov

I’ve been going out sketching silently for the past 4 Sundays, around the Waun Wen area of Swansea. Just little quiet scribbles, carrying my sketchbook through the streets, working en plein air. I like looking up, as many people don’t and they miss so much. I’m noticing so many details I hadn’t before. On the right I was taken by the dynamic lines of the house extensions zig-zagging up into the air. On the left, a fat seagull perched its ampleness on a little tower thing. I sketched it a few times because it kept moving – birds are very fidgety – I don’t know if they sense they’re being drawn.

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the antique taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these vintage 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.

20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.

        The ones I was most recently photographing were in Bushy Park in London. One climbed all the way up my leg to look in my hand to see if I had any nuts!

      What a cheek! Husb got bit by a squirrel once, he was trying to feed it a peanut and it bit his finger. Oh how I laughed 😀
