On top of my busy schedule recently, producing illustrations for commissioned work, quoting for some new clients, and hopefully starting new projects soon (which I’ll keep you in the loop about), I wanted to showcase this new painting illustration today.
Following from my previous landscape illustrations I shared last month of Sydney Opera House and Basil Cathedral, I’ve recently produced this painting illustration of Amsterdam.
It was my birthday about a month ago, and I celebrated this by going on a European road trip with my brothers. Visiting Dusseldorf, Cologne and Amsterdam, I felt inspired to produce an painting illustration that I can showcase within my illustration portfolio. I love the culture, people and architecture there, that I wanted my illustration to symbolise.
Amsterdam Painting Illustration
This illustration was produced with gouache, watercolour and edited digitally. I’ve gone for a limited colour palette with this painting illustration, of reds, blues, purples, orange and yellow. This focuses my use of colour, and resists the urge to use too many within my illustrations.
You can see that I’ve gone for a simple approach with this illustration, which I’ve been implementing into my illustration style for a while now. I love clean illustration, and this illustration hopefully epitomizes this. I spend a lot of time editing my illustrations in Photoshop, to make sure they’re looking neat, tidy and clean.
You can see some detail shots from this painting illustration below. It was a really fun illustration to produce, and I hope you like it! Let me know what you think by commenting below, I’ll have to hear from you!
Many thanks for listening and visiting my news page today. You can follow what I’m up to on my Twitter, Facebook or Google + pages, I’ll really appreciate it if you do, and don’t be afraid to say hi to me! Many thanks again, and have a great day!
