Illustrating Steep Hill - Lincoln
When I was a wee nipper, I could spend hours a day drawing streets. Streets with butchers, bakers, and shoe shops. Houses filled with people going about their business. I've always been intrigued by the variety of curious buildings, all lined up together, all with different characters, all with a different story to tell.
Steep Hill is just about the prettiest street I've ever seen. It's filled with different shops from secondhand book stores, to delicious chocolatiers, to quirky galleries (which some of my work is in!) to delightful little tea shops. I've decided to paint it's fabulousness. The illustration above is in it's first stages, but by the end of the day it should be completely finished, so watch this space...
