How to Make a Kite

 

BBC Countryfile Magazine recently commissioned Liam O'Farrell for a landscape kite-flying illustration.

BBC Countryfile Magazine is packed with news of the countryside and outdoor living, and for this feature on kite building, Liam has produced a beautiful spread of children flying a kite in an English landscape - infact one just outside his back door.

He explains, "I produced the initial visuals based on the fields around the Vale of Avalon where I live in Somerset. This has quite a hilly landscape so it is not suitable for vast fields of crops. Once we agreed on the initial concepts, I went ahead with the final illustration. It was a real joy to do and looks pretty effective in the final magazine. That said, I won’t attempt making another kite. I know my limits."

Joe Wilson – Johnnie Walker journey from Scotland to Mumbai

Joe’s illustration focuses on the Johnnie Walker journey from Scotland to Mumbai, depicting scenes from India's busiest and most vibrant city. The majestic giant Bengal tiger welcomes Johnnie Walker through the gateway to India, into a bustling indian landscape. From the high rise buildings in Mumbai's metropolitan region, to India's beautiful landscapes of mountain temples and exotic wildlife with elephants, peacocks and monkeys.

Much like Mumbai, this drawing melds the traditional and the modern, combining elements of Mumbai's spiritual past and prosperous future.

Country gents: New exhibition by Sutherland surrealist

Sutherland-based artist Mark Edwards  has another brilliant show at the Catto Gallery in Hampstead from October 2nd - 21st October .... His wonderful paintings depict scenes of men in great coats and bowler hats in snowy, wooded landscapes.  Working from a former shepherd's cottage, his "The White Wood" series has led him to being "described as a modern master of a very British form of surrealism".

The Catto Gallery in Hampstead, London, will exhibit 24 new original canvases from the series next month.

Edwards, who also illustrates books, said: "For me The White Wood is to do with silence, memory, separation and things that I still don't really understand, occasionally humorous yet sometimes disturbing.But where I once felt uncomfortable and tense, now I'm far more at home with the surreal and intangible"

Edwards studied fine art at London's Medway Art College and then Walthamstow College of Art in the 1960s. He then moved north to the rundown property on the shores of Loch Hope.

Alongside his painting, he worked as a gillie on the neighbouring Duke of Westminster estate, but  stopped in 2007 and began creating art from which The White Wood series emerged.

 Edwards now paints from his remote studio in a cottage in Sutherland.

Frances Castle: CD Packaging for Jetsam and Gareth E. Rees ‘A Dream Life of Hackney Marshes’

A Dream Life of Hackney Marshes is another beautifully crafted, limited edition album designed and illustrated by Frances Castle for Clay Pipe Music. Frances' atmospheric images are a perfect foil for Gareth E. Rees' words about the landscape of the Hackney Marshes and it's mix of ancient wetland, overgrown Victorian ruins, wild flower meadows, pylons, railway sidings and reservoirs. Ree's spoken word in collaboration with Jetsam's orchestration, takes us on a journey through this troubled dreamscape.
