About

Art in the making

I truly love the astounding beauty found in so many place in Ireland. Living in Northern Ireland, I get to see beautiful places every day and never get tired of it - how could anyone. It is not just the famous places such as the Giant's Causeway and the Mourne Mountains, it is also the many beautiful small towns and villages throughout the country.

The inspiration for my art comes from the old Art Deco railway and travel posters from the 1920s and 30s, but my aim is to cover more of the lesser known beauty spots of the country. So, with pencil and paper in hand, I frequently set off around the country to sketch some inspiring scenes. I prefer to work from sketches and I can leave out or move around bits and pieces ans required to make a pleasing composition. As wellas sketches, I often take photographs for reference and because if sometimes rains in Ireland! :-)

From the comfort of home, I next plan my pictures with quick pencil layouts before hand digitising the images onto the computer. This involves drawing in wireframe mode (vectors) in illustration software where I then use my own palette of vintage colours. This can be a very slow way of drawing the pictures, but it means that the quality is always perfect no matter how big I enlarge them.

I hope you like my modern take on the old poster art. New pictures are always in the making so check back regularly to see the latest additions.
