These are two pieces are commissions I recently completed. The top one of Grasmere was a bastard to make because of the sheer number of trees. A truly horrendous experience, but I didn’t make it easy for myself to be honest. I didn’t want the image to just be a mass trees the same colour, as I feel like that’s a bit of a cop-out. The style is somewhat Disney-esq inspired, and not a million miles away from the aesthetic Ira Sluyterman van Langeweyde (aka iraville) uses in her work – check her out here – http://www.iraville.de/blog/
The second piece, Joe Coffee, was a more true to life representation. I wanted to go heavier with the line work which is a style I’m leaning more heavily into because I feel it suits my type of art, plus it’s very much en vogue at the moment.
Both pieces available in my etsy store – https://mattwalkerart.etsy.com/
