Here’s another masterpiece I started copying last year, October, in one of painter Ed Sumner’s tutorials, Surrealist Salvador Dali’s “Christ Of Saint John Of The Cross”. I started studying weekly with Ed at the beginning of lockdown in 2020. I didn’t think that the pandemic would last so long, but it’s meant that I’ve learned such a lot about painting techniques and also art history, by studying from the great artists over the past couple of years. There’s a bit more faffing to do on the small figures at the bottom, then back to the figure on the cross, to knock back that orange tan and paint the final details.
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.

20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.
