Darkroom shenanigans! (My ‘darkroom’ is simply an area in my studio that can be enclosed by light-proof curtains when needed. Grayson had not yet discovered this fluid ‘space within a space’ and was mightily intrigued when I recently used it while exposing some screens for a new print) - #darkroom #lightproof #blackoutcurtains #black #grey #cat #greeneyes #grayson #explorer #onelungedwonder #MegaLung #ThinGreyDuke #catsofinstagram #screenprinting #zeefdruk #lowkey #lowkey_photography -
This was a relatively good inking session, but the intense & unprecedented heatwave we’ve been experiencing in NL has had some ‘interesting’ effects on my drawing ink – turning it (and me!) into a rapidly congealing, sticky mess. The second pic illustrates a particularly bad inking session when, on lifting the freshly dipped pen to continue drawing, the entire inkpot came with it and crash-landed across the drawing. Ugh… a sticky mess indeed! This is, of course, a very trivial effect of the #climatebreakdown we now find ourselves in the midst of, but no less vexing for its insignificance in the great scheme of things… #no_use_crying_over_spilt_ink - #drawing #inking #indianink #encredechine #dippen #spillage #blunder #stickymess #sunlight #shadow #organic #pattern #mycelium #tangled #chaos #climatecollapse - Thankfully today is a cooler, rainy day… perfect inking conditions! -

I will always make a beeline to this painting when visiting London’s National Gallery (@national_gallery). It captures the lashing winds and torrential rains of a tropical jungle storm beautifully, and I love the surprised expression on the tiger’s face captured at the moment lightning strikes. - Two details from Henri Rousseau’s ‘Surprised!’, 1891, oil on canvas - #art #arthistory #rousseau #henrirousseau #surprised #tiger #jungle #foliage #verdant #lush #tropical #storm #rain #lightning #painting #oiloncanvas #colour #gallery #museum #nationalgallery #trafalgarsquare #london #catsofinstagram
Vegan heaven in 16th Century Antwerp! (at London’s @national_gallery) - Two details from the painting ‘The Four Elements: Earth’ by Joachim Beuckelaer, 1569, oil on canvas. Swipe left for a mouth-wateringly vivid abundance of juicy fruits… and left again for this painting’s violent counterpoint: ‘The Four Elements: Fire’ (detail), Joachim Beuckelaer, 1570, oil on canvas - #vegan #fruit #vegetables #plants #plenty #crueltyfree #abundance #earth #compassion - #art #arthistory #beuckelaer #joachimbeuckelaer #flemish #painting #oiloncanvas #colour #gallery #museum #nationalgallery #trafalgarsquare #london -
