This piece is a personal project that I have designed to display in an exhibition based on Harlow Town. The aim is to highlight some of the many creative feature within the town centre which offer inspiration to its public.
Still Life by Fred Watson
I have included many of the sculptures which are dotted around the centre, and some of the architecture which give the town its character such as, the old citizens advice bureau, terminus house, and market square clock.

I have also added people into the piece to show the iteration between the town and its people. The two sitting on the bench are enjoying the relaxed environment of the water gardens, The cyclist is passing though due to the many cycle routes that link the centre to the other parts of town, and the guy on the balcony is overlooking Market Square at The Rows.

I have tried to create a true and positive representation of Harlow, and look forward to having it on display next month.
This piece will be on display from the 11th of July in Eastgate Gallery, Harlow.
Since printing my previous set of designs, Winter Wildlife, the opportunity has been put to me to have some of my work on sale in this years Christmas shop in Eastgate, Harlow.
So that has motivated me to create a new design to sit on the shelf along side my last set of cards.
I wanted to create something a bit more simple, a one colour print, and what would be better in the theme of christmas then a page full of penguins.
Rather then just having cards stocked in the shop, my aim was to create A5 note/sketch books and a larger artprint too.
The process of printing often generates off cuts and misprints, so rather then throwing them away I decided to print on my off-cuts and cut up my misprints leaving me with loads of little squares of print, which I then turned into gift tags and greeting cards.
The shop opens on the 15th of December in Eastgate Gallery, Harlow.
