bloomsbury festival 15- 24 october 2021

The 13 original illustrations which I made for the book ‘Bloomsbury’s Squares and Gardens’ can be viewed here and prints of them can be ordered. During the Bloomsbury Festival 2021 these illustrations were exhibited on large panels around most of the garden squares of Bloomsbury.

I spent the festival drawing in the garden squares each day, aiming to capture the life and activity of these historic green spaces. The drawings are all made using mixed media (pen, oil pastel, watercolour, ink and stick, oil base pencils) on Full Imperial (76 x 56cm) HP watercolour paper. See them below.

Along with each drawing are my observations, written at the time of drawing, which can be viewed on the clicked images (apart from images 07 and 08 at the moment).

Limited Edition Prints (edition size: 25) are available of all the drawings below.
The print size of the rectangular images is 45 x 60cm and the unframed / unmounted price is £120
The print size of the panoramic image (No: 06) is 36 x 96cm and the unframed / unmounted price is £140 (UK delivery included)
