Sketching, Masking And An Explosive Pudding

6 Apr

Back to basics

Back to basics today with a little bit of sketching. I’m going to try and do a good few of these over the coming week. I’ve been neglecting my sketchbook work for a while, which is really slack of me. Sketching is good practice and I need to take it more seriously. I used to sketch almost every day but I’ve seriously lapsed during the last year of pandemic lockdowns. I’m working from photos, but that’s the way it is at the moment.

Hardcore

I treated myself to a new respirator mask. I’m starting to fancy doing some woodcuts on MDF and disposable masks are not really good enough for any serious carving, so I got this lovely little number, a NA&UM Chemical Respirator Mask M101. It’s pretty hardcore – I think I’ll wear it to the local shop.

First of the season

And I made the first rhubarb crumble of the season. The garden rhubarb is lovely, very mild and pink and it’s just gorgeous with custard. That’s a Husb sized portion there, any more than a spoonful for me has an explosive effect on my digestive system, I’m afraid.

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.
