Fog From The Tower.

14 Apr
Many Layers Of Soft Pastels.

Husb and I spent a few days in The Lake District, on a little peninsula called Roa Island, in a house with a tower and fantastic scenery over Morecambe Bay and the Irish Sea. One day it was light but foggy so I decided to draw the view from one of the Tower windows. It was hard! It was so misty and indistinct and the colours so subtle. It reminded me of some of the atmospheric paintings of J.M.W. Turner. It’s more complex than it looks, it’s built up of layers and layers of little marks in lots of colours, using Rembrandt pastels onto a very heavy and textured Khadi handmade paper. It’s interesting coming so far out of my comfort zone.

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.

    Thanks Leonie. I’ve tried copying Turner and his work is really difficult and complex 😀

    Wonderful! Definitely worth the effort (Don’t most people think what Turner did was easy😉).
