The Beauty of Cannes 2016

Jacqueline Bissett inspired by the glamour of Cannes draws a collection of self initiated images

Taking inspiration from the women who graced the red carpets of Cannes in the past weeks Jacqueline has managed to catch the spirit and the enchantment of the film festival in these four engaging illustrations.

Jacqueline really enjoyed creating these illustrations and explains here how she created them:

"I thought I'd play around with different collage materials, merging my 2 favourite styles of black ink, watercolour and Letrafilm. Some of the watercolour areas I worked on separately, before collaging on to the main art work. This retains the crisp edge whilst showing more 'pattern' within the watercolour! Cannes was such a glamourous theme, I was immediately inspired and I think that it would be an amazing live event to work at!"
