The Chinese Model In Timelapse

I’ve been trawling through my YouTube channel and thought I’d post one of the short timelapse films that Husb makes while I work. Here I am copying Tretchikoff’s “The Green Lady” or “Chinese Girl”. It took ages, so much detail in the dress, although the head was fairly straightforward. Here’s me painting her in lessContinue reading “The Chinese Model In Timelapse”

A “How To” Film – Screenprint With A Naughty Cat!

Husb and I have made a short 3 minute film about how to set yourself up to do silkscreen printing on a kitchen table, or desk. The cat joined in. Of course she did! A lot of people ask me how to set up for printmaking at home, so this will be the first ofContinue reading “A “How To” Film – Screenprint With A Naughty Cat!”

Printing Press Porn! A Short Video.

Here’s a short film of a stunner! The lovely Columbian printing press at Swansea Print Workshop. Easily my most favourite press in the world. I drool over it. Well, not literally. That would make it icky.   Invented by American George Clymer around 1813, it took over from the Stanhope Press and allowed a wholeContinue reading “Printing Press Porn! A Short Video.”

Time Lapse Film – Scribbling Pen Y Fan

Here’s a short time-lapse film of me drawing Pen Y Fan en plein air using Derwent Inktense watercolour blocks and a portable watercolour brush. The view is from the Mynydd Illtud standing stone. Raising Funds. My family is raising money for Phil, a younger relative of mine, to have life-changing surgery in Spain. Phil isContinue reading “Time Lapse Film – Scribbling Pen Y Fan”

The Cat Loves A Dali ….

I began to copy Salvador Dali’s “Christ Of Saint John Of The Cross” back in the Autumn, in a Zoom tutorial with the painter Ed Sumner. I started painting along with Ed early in lockdown in Spring 2020 and made it my pandemic goal to improve my painting skills. I’ve learned loads by copying greatContinue reading “The Cat Loves A Dali ….”

Got The Covids So Here’s A Video

Feeling tired and miserable as I’ve finally been hit with Covid19. The symptoms haven’t been too bad except that I’m exhausted and my brain doesn’t work, so I thought I’d trawl through my YouTube channel (Yes I have one) and post some of my arty videos until I can get doing some proper artwork again.Continue reading “Got The Covids So Here’s A Video”

Unboxing Excitement!

Sciency Stuff! I’m so excited! I’ve just unboxed my new pendant from Swansea-based artist / designer / jeweller Thomas Newton. I love his work – it starts as this sort of computery concept and somehow he magics it into existence with sciency stuff. There, that explained it well. You can find his work on FacebookContinue reading “Unboxing Excitement!”

Abstract Layers Of Colour

Here’s a short film of a Paul Cezanne painting, Mont Sainte-Victoire, that I copied back last year, when we were still in the throes of the first pandemic lockdown, with Ed Sumner’s Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook. It’s shows extreme closeups of the surface of the painting, showing the many layers of LiquitexContinue reading “Abstract Layers Of Colour”

Husb is the tecchie filmie person in the household and he puts these short films together. This is created fromContinue reading “Monday Video: Drawing In Public”
