Book cover Design using watercolour and collaged elements.
Drawing and painting day spent at the Botanical Gardens in Bristol. It is so nice using colour straight onto the paper with a thick brush!
I am in the process of making a few small books, aiming for print this summer.
When I first began using collage something clicked, it seem ridiculous that I had not worked in this way before.
What I really enjoy is piecing together shapes and colours in order to produce a balanced image.
Although all my illustration is created in collage, it is good to make some more abstract pieces as you can always learn something in the process.
Taking a break from the illustrated pages and trying out a pattern repeat for the end papers of my book project.
