Nicolson Square Gardens, Edinburgh

Nicolson Square Gardens, Edinburgh

This is a project in which I documented a less known location in the beautiful city of Edinburgh. I chose to explore the area Nicolson Square Gardens, and the daily routine of the people within that area. Nicolson Square Gardens is a multicultural area of Edinburgh which has recently been renovated, improving the central garden area. Within my illustration I am really interested in people and their habits and characteristics. There were lots of interesting people within this area. I love busy, colourful illustrations and would love to produce work for children. I enjoy exploring different media and I used various different materials within this book, including, print, collage, ink and gouache. I wrote the narrative for this story which developed from sitting watching people and then interviewing and asking more about what it was people enjoyed about this area of Edinburgh.
