AIG Exhibition 2012 - Triton Gallery, Sledmere. Sunday 15th Apr - 27th
Opening times: Tues - Fri 11am - 4pm, Sunday 11am - 4pm
The exhibition has been announced for the artwork which we've been doing based on the gardens visited last year.
I visited a lovely colourful place, high in the Yorkshire Wolds called Jacksons Wold Garden. I'll show you some pictures of the pretty house and the gardens.
I found the house particularly inspiring, it was the ice-cream like colours, the exterior walls are a delicate peachy colour and the roof is lilac, set amongst the strong shades of green.
Here are some more views of the cottage gardens.
A tranquil pond to sit and contemplate by.
The photos and a few sketches were my research & I've produced 2 types of work. I've done my digital style posters featured here and some textile work which I'll do as another post.
My poster starts out as a simple line drawing based on a photo & done on a graphics tablet. Looking back, that part is relatively quick to do. The laborious task is filling in the detail (especially leaves & plants), selecting the colours and 'painting' it up.
I got there eventually and added some nice, crisp typography. I set out to do one poster in the lovely colours which originally inspired me and then I messed about a bit with some sepia shades and ended up with a second, more aged looking poster.
Here they are printed up,
Problem: I can only choose one poster to exhibit and now I can't decide whether I prefer, the sepia one...
or the colourful one...
anyone want to suggest which!!!
I may be influenced by the majority.
The textile work will be visible soon.
