Appledore Façades

I started this project back in October 2019 as part of ‘Inktober’, a social media challenge which involved drawing something every day for a month. I decided that I wanted to use the challenge to create a collection of drawings of some of my favourite buildings in Appledore, and it wasn’t long before I realised that it was a project I wanted to explore in more depth.

When the 31 days of Inktober were done, there were so many more buildings that I felt deserved to be in the collection, lots suggested by locals and visitors on Facebook, so I continued. I then used watercolour to bring them to life, rendering them as accurately as possible.

In the time since I painted them, some of the buildings have changed, been painted, or had items removed. I like that this has made the collection into a snapshot in time – and a reminder that time is always moving on.

Below you can view the individual paintings, I hope you enjoy looking through them (there is a list of all the buildings names at the bottom). If you would be interested in buying one, please let me know. Each painting is £85, mounted and unframed, plus £5 p&p. A6 prints £10, A5 prints £15 (plus £2.75 p&p).
