“What is Creative Mondays?

Monday’s are always a drag. The start of a new week, you have to go back to that routine of going to bed early/get up early. If (like me) you have to commute then you prepare for that long journey into work and that long journey back for the first time after a nice two day break.

So to kick off those lousy Mondays, I’m going to get my creative mind flowing in a positive way. Creative Mondays. A chance for me to show off something unfinished or finished that I’ve been working on throughout the previous week.”

As summer winds down, I thought I’d share a few photos from my recent time off. If there’s ever a place to be to take in an awesome sunset, it’s Cornwall. Sun, sand and sea are all I need to unwind, clear the mind and relax.

I’ve been inspired by a lot of silhouette work recently and most of it has resulted in posters of Marvel Superheroes or video games. This week I thought I’d create my own scene plucked from my very own head.

The tower and house are based on reference images to get the angle/perspective correct and I thought I’d inject some awesome sunset colours into the background scenery for good measure! I’m loving this style because it gives me a chance to work with foreground and background colours in order to create a depth to the image.
