‘A Mad Tea-Party’ 2020

Ink and acrylic on Alice in Wonderland book pages, dressmaking pattern and playing cards.

30 x 42 cm

Another of my Sky Arts Portrait Artist of The week portraits. This week’s sitter we had the delightfully lovely Mr Noel Fielding Profession artist this week was Kimberly Klauss

Another week where I just sat, watched and listened during the four hour paint-a-long. This week’s artist/sitter conversation was especially interesting as Noel is also a fellow artist. As for Kimberly’s painting; she uses oils in a really interesting way, so it’s well worth a watch on the Artist of The year Facebook page if you get a chance.

Once again I used a few screenshots of the sitter to do my version. Sometimes a sitter can really lend themselves to certain collage elements. For Noel, I just had to use Alice, flamingoes, Mad Hatter, hearts and dressmaking patterns. Hopefully he’ll approve.

Original artwork and signed prints of this piece are available to purchase via my online shop.

And for anyone interested in exactly how I put this artwork together. Here’s a video of me discussing my process, my ways of working and then some very sped up video film of me completing this from start to finish.
