Scribbles And Scratchings

16 Apr
Making marks and textures.

Here’s the last drawing from my recent trip to The Lake District. I went to see Castle Rigg, the ancient stone circle, but it was packed with visitors and I couldn’t figure out what I wanted to draw. So I walked the perimeter of the field and looked out into the countryside and this vista caught my eye. I tried not to get bogged down in detail, instead concentrated on building up layers and layers of textured marks and then scratched into them. I used Rembrandt pastels onto Khadi paper.

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.
