Venice and Padova

A pair of illustrations made following annual trips to Veneto to explore the streets of these two wonderful cities – full of texture and architectural drama. Based on sketchbook studies of both cities and capturing memories of ‘place’ through a hand drawn, coloured and collaged approach that brings together some of their iconic shapes, forms and details. The drawings are inspired by master illustrator Edward Bawden’s series of lino prints of London details made in the 1950s.
