Faking With The Cat – The Film

25 Feb

Here’s a speeded up video of me painting a copy of Andre Derain’s “Charing Cross Bridge”, painted in 1906 in the Fauvist style. With Sparta Puss, the cat. She likes to muscle in on the action. There’s about 3 hours of action compressed into 3 minutes.

I started painting it in the Cheese and Wine Painting Club run by painter Ed Sumner every Friday on Facebook. He’s been running it since the start of the first lockdown almost a year ago. It’s free or a donation if you can afford and it’s great fun. Here’s a link to the next one ….. it’s a Monet.

 

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.

Faking A Fauve

19 Feb

It’s Faking Friday again with Ed Sumner’s Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook. This week we copied “Charing Cross Bridge” by the early 20th century Fauvist artist Andre Derain. I’ve always loved the work of the Fauvists, the word is derived from the French Fauves – wild beasts. Matisse is probably the most famous of the group. I’ve almost finished – maybe another hour over the weekend should do it.
