This Easter I decided to enter an open brief for artists ran by Amelia’s Magazine around the theme of Easter. My Easter card design which I scanned and coloured on photoshop can be seen By clicking on this link!
As I mentioned in the article, I really wanted to create something which captured what I love about Easter, possibly my favourite season of the year! I love old vintage greetings cards and the pastel colours they have. I also love spring and the flowers that start to bloom at this time of the year, and of course animals which explains the rabbit and lamb!
Recently I was kindly asked to return to my old Secondary School and sixth form, Boston High School, to talk to pupils on International Women’s Day about my progress and uni courses.
I had the chance to talk to sixth formers and a class of year 8’s and took pretty much every project I’ve done over the past 4 years! It was great so see what they thought about my work as well as give some advice to those considering applying for arts courses when they finish school.
Above is a birthday card I drew, scanned in and coloured in photoshop for my friend Jess for her birthday! I’m super happy with this and managed to get to grips with changing the colour of drawn scanned in line which I have been wondering how to do for a while. I used a limited palette also which worked well. Overall I’m really happy with this and hope to continue to colour in scanned drawings!
