Ella Galea
A Distant View


Un-commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
'A Distant View' is the result of spending much of last year within the same four walls, where the only way I could explore remarkable landscapes from around the world was by drawing them from the comfort of my own home.

How was the illustration used:
The illustration series was created to build my personal portfolio.

How did you make this work:
The series was made by hand using a range of mixed media. The base of the images have mostly been created using gouache paint, with added details created by using materials like pencils and pens.
