Day 15: Art makes the world a better place

I am now half way through my 30 day challenge! You can read more about my idea for setting this challenge in the first place here.

Today I have used some hand painted ink typography that I had planned to use in my illustration on day 12 or day 13 , but once I started to layer it up and compose it, I realised it wasn't going to work and would be far too busy. But I really liked this type, so decided to use it by itself today instead!

Day 13: Rainbow Ruin II

I decided to do another illustration based on my visit to the ruin of St Peter’s Seminary .

Yesterday's illustration was also inspired by this, and I wrote more about why and the ruin itself here. 

Rainbow Ruin II, Art by Holly Sharpe

To create this illustration I used a combination of photographs I took, extracting colours and marks, as well as some echoes of the building itself, that I then layered up and composed. And also some inky typography which I hand painted and then layered on top.
