Prepping

17 Apr
The first of many preparatory sketches.

After doing so much painting during the pandemic lockdown, with the irrepressible Ed Sumner of the Cheese and Wine Painting Club, I decided I’d do more painting this year, but self- generated ones, portraits of friends and family. So I’m making a start with Husb.

My first step is to do preparatory sketches, to get a composition that I like and to practice different bits. These are the first of many. I used a ballpoint pen into an A6 sketchbook, using the continuous line drawing technique. I’ve got a long way to go but each little sketch refines my final vision.

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 Gale. Trying to find the time to do art work is the problem though. I love your zebra print xx
