Borough Veg 1
Borough Veg 1. 2013. Monoprint, pen and ink.

Here’s the first of the Borough Market illustrations: Borough Market Veg 1 that I was researching the other day (see post). Using reference photos taken with my phone, I constructed a composition in Photoshop then worked from that. It saves having to stick a scary camera lens into people’s faces whilst they work/sell/eat in London SE1. After that, a lot of colourful monoprinting ensued (using dry paper), followed by an addition of all the contrasty detail, afterwards, in ink with a pen. There are four more of these to come (Bread, Veg 2, Juice and Fish) but I’ll share those when they are all complete.
