The next city within my illustration series is Plymouth, a place I spent two years of my life studying at university in. It’s a great place with a perfect balance of city life and gorgeous harbourside. Definitely a place I want to visit again! The illustration features Plymouths infamous lighthouse, along with the lido, shopping centre and interesting architecture of the university building!
This next town in my city series is Dawlish, a gorgeous Devon seaside town that is one of my favourite places! Within the illustration I’ve included the black swan, which Dawlish is known for and the distinctive red cliffs that run along the sea front. Now to get my thinking cap on to choose my next place!
After experimenting with my illustrative style and creating my Bristol abstract landscape piece, I found I really enjoyed the process and loved the outcome. Therefore, I decided to start a series of all the places I have been and love, so the next city I chose was Oxford. I love Oxford, it’s such a beautiful place and is a big contrast to Bristol so was a challenge for me to depict the old tudor style buildings in comparison to the modern shops of Bristol. I am thinking of choosing a seaside town next, such as Dawlish as it’s another favourite place of mine and again will be a different kind of landscape all together.
What do you think of this new style does it work?!
I know it’s been a while since I posted a pattern, and once again it’s a change of style for me. I have kept it simple and geometric, something I don’t usually do, to again play around and develop my style as an illustrator !!
