Location, Location, Location

It was by chance that both Grace and I decided to live by the coast, but on opposite ends of the country to one another. It was through our own personal projects that we found ourselves creating these illustrations from being inspired by our surroundings. We decided to reproduce these illustrations as prints and postcards which will be sold in our Etsy shop later this year.

E: My illustrations focuses mainly on the seafront to where I call home. I've always used watercolours in my work, but it's been a while since I last dabbled in them. So I was quite excited to go back to them after going for a walk along the seafront. I was inspired by the colours of the sea and the sky meeting, it was from taking photos of my boyfriend walking the beach that the inspiration to paint it came to me. There was something about the different shades of blue that stood out to me, and made me want to recreate it in watercolours. 
I'll be selling these on our Etsy shop as prints, in A4 and A3, with a white border and possibly frame. More details will be available nearer the time.

G: These are a select few of the final images I have made for the zine 'A Walk Along the Seafront' I am collaborating with Clare Pryke. More images can be found on my blog here. I will make an individual set and sell them as postcards on our etsy.
