Group painting session

Whilst prepping for our deadlines, Nicholas thought it would be a cool idea to have a bit of a fun project, and teach us about painting with inks, and how to add shading and shadows according to the light source in the piece. So a group of us all had to paint a mural, type thing, based on either our collections, or something we were interested in. We all wanted to do something fun, so 4 of us from our year, and 4 from the third year all collaborated on working on the mural! here are some close ups of what we have been doing!

I absolutely loved doing these collaborative pieces, as there are so many narratives we did. I really like how everything comes together, even though there were 9 different artists, with 9 different styles, working on it. The piece has a lot of cohesion, which I was surprised with, because of how different everyones styles are! I did a lot of the sea creatures which isn’t normally the style I would go for, but Kate and I did the sea wall together, so I did try to match her amazing style a little! Although a lot of the simplified buts are in my type of style! The finished piece looks super awesome as well!

It looks super quirky and fun! But the black and white also gives it a bit of a darker feel which is quite cool! We plan on doing some more of this type of work but using colours which will look really awesome I think!

Polkadot fashion

Here is the image I have included in my illustrated cv and business plans, although I did three different coloured ones. This is just one of the images I have done as part of my fashion illustration practice, and as my business plan is based around this type of career, I wanted to include an illustration I had done for this type of work! Althoug this is a really simple illustration, it’s one of my favourites.

Poem illustrations

Just to have a little break from all of the project work I have been doing lately, here are some pictures of two illustrations I did for a poem competition. The first poem was called ‘March’ and the second was called ‘Haunted House’. I really liked doing the haunted house project because I focused on the last line “it was just a mouse” so I got to use my watercolours and do a cute mouse painting.
