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”

Irises in close-up

Way back in February I finished this copy of Van Gogh’s Irises. It’s a beautiful painting which is fiendishly complicated when you start trying to copy it. My hat’s off to the man. I haven’t blogged the video of it before. It’s a slow zoom out from and extreme close up, showing you the brushworkContinue reading “Irises in close-up”


PODCAST SEPTEMBER 2021 Hiya, Rosie Scribblah here. Welcome to my latest podcast. It’s called 10 Paintings – I don’t do long podcasts. Just enough time for a cuppa tea and a biscuit. Or a Welsh cake. This is about 10 paintings I have copied through lockdown. I’ve been following the Cheese and Wine PaintingContinue reading “PODCAST: 10 PAINTINGS AND A CUPPA TEA”

Vincent Goes To The Seaside

These dynamic brushstrokes are from a “fake” I did of a painting by Vincent van Gogh, “Fishing Boats on the Beach at Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer“, which was painted when Vincent was living in Arles in the south of France and had a trip to the seaside for a week in 1888 to help with his health.Continue reading “Vincent Goes To The Seaside”

The Brothers In Montmartre

This is a painting copy I have done of one of van Gogh’s scenes of Montmartre. Vincent was living with his brother Theo in 1886 when he painted this, when the area was still very rural. It’s not like that anymore, although there’s a windmill, the Moulin Rouge, and a few vineyards. But back whenContinue reading “The Brothers In Montmartre”

Blobby Purpley Swirls

Vincent van Gogh painted lots of flowers, tons of them. Here’s a close up of one of the irises I copied recently during The Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook. Ed Sumner, who runs the club, taught us to paint these by doing a sort of swirl in one stroke with a big brushContinue reading “Blobby Purpley Swirls”

Sticking Up In Little Spikes….

Here’s a little bit of a van Gogh sunflower from the copy I painted in one of Ed Sumner’s Cheese and Wine Painting Clubs on Facebook. I’m selling the painting to raise funds for LATCH, The Children’s Cancer Charity which has given fantastic support to a young relative over the past few years and helpedContinue reading “Sticking Up In Little Spikes….”

Sparta Puss And van Gogh’s Bedroom

I recently painted van Gogh’s Bedroom In Arles and here’s a one minute timelapse film of it. Sparta Puss “helped”. I painted it during a Zoom tutorial with the painter Ed Sumner who started the Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook at the start of lockdown in March 2020 to give people something toContinue reading “Sparta Puss And van Gogh’s Bedroom”

Choppy Texture

Here’s the latest fake I did with Ed Sumner’s Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook. Ed started the weekly lunchtime sessions at the start of Covid19 lockdown in March last year and he’s done about 70 so far. This week it’s a copy of a painting by David Hockney. I think the original showsContinue reading “Choppy Texture”

Faking A Vincent

Finally finished faking Friday’s masterpiece, Sunset at Wheat Field by Vincent van Gogh, painted in 1888. I started it with Ed Sumner’s Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook. Ed’s been running these sessions since lockdown started in March last year, to help people find a focus in these weird times. I’ve now completed overContinue reading “Faking A Vincent”
