Drawing: Ballpoint Pen, Digital, Graphite, Marker, Pencil on Canvas.
Part of a set titled ‘rural decay’; this piece portrays Australian rural abandonment in rural Victoria. The images are of iconic rural landscapes such as a windmill, corrugated shearing shed, weatherboard cottage, farm machinery, etc. Based on my own photography, images were firstly hand drawn using mixed media (graphite, fine liner, marker) before being scanned.
The drawings were done in a slightly loose style to ensure they have an illustrative appearance as opposed to a photo realist appearance. I then used Photoshop methods to create the blue skies using digital watercolor brushes & gradients. Each image is digitally colored on the same layer as the scan to create a direct relationship between traditional & digital illustrative methods.
Once complete, the high-resolution traditional/digital drawings are printed onto canvas to create the perfect reproducible wall art.
