Back To The Paint Club

12 Feb

Back to Friday lunchtime Cheese and Wine Paint Club with Ed Sumner on Facebook today. An abstract landscape this week, not my type of thing if I’m honest but I learnt a lot about applying and layering paint. I used Liquitex Heavy Body acrylic onto a small stretched canvas, using brushes, palette knife and fingers.

 

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these antique 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.

Family, Zoom And Scraps Of Colour

Every week since early in lockdown we have had a family quiz with relatives from as far afield as Australia and Ammanford. It’s helped us all to cope, especially when the lockdown was at its toughest, although our Australian family are now in a second lockdown. Zoom came along at the right time.

I used up some more leftover paint and paper and had a play with squiggles earlier too. I like the way the heavy Bockingford paper breaks up the paint. I guess I’ll eventually use these scraps in some collages.

Still Squiggling

Had some more leftover paint again today so I played with it and had a squiggle session on some leftovers Bockingford paper. I’m beginning to enjoy the feel of the paint on the paper and the way it layers up and changes. Oh, and I used a pallette knife as well – advanced stuff 😀

Playing Some More

Had a bit more of a play today, using up leftover Liquitex acrylic paint on some leftover Bockingford paper. It’s not meant to look like anything, I’m trying to enjoy the paint for its own sake, which isn’t easy for me to do, I don’t lean naturally towards abstract painting.
