Here’s a short timelapse video of me copying Tretchikoff’s Green Lady – I wish I could do it this fast!!!

 

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 The Ultimate Kitsch

29 Mar

Here she is at last, portrait of Monica Pon-su-san, aka The Green Lady by Russian artist Vladimir Tretchikoff. I started this in a Zoom tutorial with Ed Sumner who runs the Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook a couple of weeks ago. I really liked doing the details on the dress, it’s not something I would normally do. I remember the painting from my childhood, it was one of those that almost everyone seemed to have a copy of. It was immensely popular. I always thought it was the ultimate in kitsch and I still think it’s kitsch, but it’s good, well crafted kitsch and reflects the time it was made – mid 20th century. Here are some of the stages I went through with the painting.

Green Lady’s Yellow Frock

23 Mar

I’ve nearly finished the copy of Vladimir Tretchikoff’s “Green Lady” that I started a couple of weeks ago. I think her head is just about done now, so today I did a lot of work on the yoke of her dress. It’s an elaborate embroidered silky fabric and I’ve never painted anything like this before. I think I’m getting there, just a bit more work on the finer details and I’m done. I started this in a Zoom tutorial with Ed Sumner who runs the Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook. And after wards, I made a plum tarte tatin for teatime 😀

Green Cheese

17 Mar

She’s green and this is possibly one of the cheesiest paintings of the 20th century (1952). She’s The Green Lady (also Chinese Girl) by the Russian painter Vladimir Tretchikoff. I did a Zoom tutorial this evening with Ed Sumner, who runs the Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook on Fridays. It’s a late one and I’ve just finished – shattered now and need my bed. A little bit more to do on this – softening the tones on the face, adding some highlights and putting in the detail on the yoke of her dress.
