Description

Hand signed, titled and dated in pencil: a stylised illustration/art print of historic buildings: Frankwell, Shrewsbury, Shropshire.

About the building/area: As shown in the illustration, Frankwell has a history of flooding. Frankwell's origins are connected with the crossing of the River Severn from the meander core which forms the centre of Shrewsbury. Water Lane, which still exists today, led to a ford over the river that was probably a crossing point in the early Middle Ages. St George's Bridge, a fortified and partly inhabited structure, was built in the mid twelfth century. This bridge, which also became known as Welsh(man's) Bridge in the thirteenth century, crossed the river from the end of Mardol on the town side to a position close to a former Methodist chapel on the Frankwell side. 92 Frankwell is the surviving half of a two-bay cruck-framed hall house, and 111-12 Frankwell is a pair of early fifteenth century semi-detached houses. Boundaries in the oldest part of Frankwell have been strongly influenced by medieval burgage plots approached from the main street through passages. Frankwell was highly prosperous in the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries. 4-7 Frankwell is an imposing building with ground-floor shops and first- and second- floor workshops above, built in about 1590. 113-14 Frankwell, built around 1620, remains a splendid and imposing half-timbered building. Late seventeenth and early eighteenth century buildings, including the 'Anchor' public house, line the corner to the approach to the old Welsh Bridge. The old Welsh Bridge (St George's Bridge) was replaced by the present day Welsh Bridge in the 1790s. The new Welsh Bridge is located some 70 m further downstream from the old bridge.

The original artwork was hand-illustrated with pencil, ink and watercolour, then digitally refined. This print is one of a collection of illustrated buildings. This particular item is professionally printed with a matt finish and white border, leaving you the choice of whether to mount or leave as standard ready for framing. This print is available in a range of colours and sizes.

The illustration method is a hugely enjoyable but painstaking process. Hours of line detail, both with pencils, inks and watercolours develop the image. I am hugely in favour of traditional techniques, but there are incredible benefits to finishing artwork with digital aids. In my case this process takes almost as long as the original hand-drawn method, enabling me to highlight, edit, enhance, tweak and filter my artwork until satisfied.

The print will arrive wrapped in brown paper, within a reinforced card envelope. Details are added to give that extra traditional feeling and work well should you wish to give the print as a gift (no extra cost): card address tag, envelope bound with string, and printed logo to seal the envelope. Free delivery within the UK, £1.99 for international deliveries.

I also accept commissions and customisations. Perhaps there is a particular setting, building, shop or even your home that you would like as an illustration?
