Wanderlust is Light Grey Art Lab’s exhibition of art from their 2016 Iceland residencies (which I attended). The exhibition is full of gorgeous art which, if you cannot get to Minneapolis, you can also see online – and buy in the art shop (including the originals of my paintings).
I sent in a set of four watercolour illustrations for a story I have been working on, which rose from the process of learning to filter stories through different landscapes.
I had been wanting to use more watercolour instead of digital colour over my line work.
I started researching a particular school of ink-and-wash illustration, and then went sideways into pencil and watercolour.
Here Our Heroine is set a task by three unusual ladies.
One of several dresses of unconventional material.
This is a rock we stood on when looking for puffins.
They are at a pretty typical scale for my work – and the originals are available from Light Grey Art Lab.
