Solar powered beach hut

Solar-powered beach hut

I also still do some illustration work. Here is a Donald McGill-style watercolour (yes, real watercolour!) for a local entrepreneur hoping to sell solar panels to beach hut owners not permitted to have regular electricity. It was drawn in Sennelier indian ink on Aquarelle Arches cold-pressed paper (indian ink is getting hard to find these days) using a Gillott 303 nib. My ‘normal’ way of working is to draw in ink onto layout/marker paper, scan into Photoshop, convert to vectors using Streamline, and finally colour-in using Freehand. Unfortunately Streamline doesn’t wok in OS X, but seems happy enough in ‘classic’ mode!
