Details And Fiddly Bits.

10 May
Painting Champagne Bottles.

I’m still copying Manet’s painting, A Bar At The Folies Bergere” and still working with the picture upside down. It’s certainly easier than painting it right way up, but it’s so complicated and it’s taking ages. It’s not just a portrait, it’s also a series of little still life groupings and these are the things I’m having problems with. I’m not used to paintings still lifes and it’s hard going. But I’m learning tons.

The Work In Progress.

Here’s where I am now, it’s mostly done but I have got to get stuck in to all the details, all the fiddly bits…. It really makes me appreciate what a talented painter Edouard Manet was.

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.
