Capturing the heart of a neighbourhood: Pubs of Colliers Wood

Art is a remarkable way of capturing the essence of moments and places in our lives, something we can treasure forever.

A vibrant, bespoke illustration commission for a big birthday

K, who already had one of my limited-edition art prints, wanted to celebrate her milestone birthday by commissioning an original piece of art. She wanted something to evoke happy memories of home and showcase her local area. We discussed several ideas and concepts through email, before deciding on a print of her three favourite pubs.

Exploring local pubs to create atmosphere through colour

As the area was local to me, I could easily explore and visit each pub, getting a feel for the atmosphere of each venue. Every detail was noted, from the architecture and signage to the greenery and ambience. I wanted to capture the essence of each place and K’s memories.

The room the commission was to go in was olive green, and K also wanted the colour scheme to be different from the print she already had. I explored colours that would harmonise with both the room and existing print, ensuring plenty of contrast. I created a vibrant palette that reflected the energy of each pub, bringing each illustration to life with a unique colour scheme, for a visually striking and evocative piece of art.

The finished piece had an incredible level of detail and beautifully showcased K’s local pubs. K has a statement piece of art with an atmospheric and mesmerising feel.
