Project Statement:
When the breeze of the lake is strong enough to send a tourist’s hat flying, relief floods those who have beads of sweat soaking their shirts as they stand in lines for overpriced water. There are joyous shouts of children from the sky-high Ferris wheel and ice cream scoops being served by the dozen. Not a cloud in the sky, feeling the sun spread her love on the reddening faces of the boardwalk.

This piece is part of my Seasons in Chicago series and happened to open my eyes to the wonders of architectural illustration. The creation process began with a traditional sketch, moved to digital linework, was traced and painted with gouache, scanned into Lightroom and Photoshop, and finally sandwiched all together while using digital paint to touch up and brighten!

Artist Statement:
Hi there, I’m Anabelle :) I have always been the quiet kid who keeps to herself and doodles her daydreams on the margins of notepads, looking forward to art class every day of the week. Since childhood, I’ve experimented with a plethora of media and styles, trying to make sense of all the jumble that fuels my creativity. Caught between realism and stylized illustration, I’m continuing to push my boundaries and work with techniques I’ve yet to conquer or even attempt. It’s a big wide world out there- who knows what else will capture my attention next! While I’ve found strengths along my journey of exploring and developing art, I can't wait to see what else the creative path ahead of me has in store.
