Done At Last….

Painting Finished!

Finally finished copying Edouard Manet’s “A Bar At The Folies Bergere“, it was hard but I learned loads about painting from one of the great painters. Of course, now I’ve decided that it’s done, I can see a lot of things that I could improve, but I have to call a halt to it sometime. The portrait was the easy bit as I’m used to figures – decades of life drawing pays off.

The Portrait Was The Easy Bit.

The really hard bits were the still-lifes – the bottles and glassware – and the interior scenes which are very atmospheric and completely out of my comfort zone. I started this back last Summer when I was following Ed Sumner’s Cheese and Wine Paint Club on Facebook. Ed began the Club at the beginning of lockdown in 2020 to give people a chance to meet up every week and do a painting and he’s still keeping it going, every Friday lunchtime. Drop by and have a look ๐Ÿ˜€

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 โ€“ old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic โ€“ 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.

I'm an artist / printmaker / scribbler. I love drawing and all the geeky stuff associated with printmaking, working in a figurative style. I live in Wales with husband and demented cats. And my real name is Rose Davies :D
