Another Day, Another Segment

11 May
Tidying Up The Oranges.

I moved onto another bit of Manet’s “A Bar At The Folies Bergere” painting that I’m copying today, upside down because it’s easier. The oranges are almost finished, the glassware is shaping up and I’ve laid down a base coat for the bottle. Still-life painting is new to me and much more complex than I ever realised. I started copying great artworks early in lockdown 2020, with Ed Sumner’s Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook. He started it to give people something to do during the pandemic – none of us realised that we’d be in some sort of lockdown for 18 months back then. I really like doing it, I’ve learnt so much about technique.

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.
