Beaulieu Motor Museum: Part 1
Beaulieu Motor Museum is popular attraction, pretty much on my doorstep (well, a ten minute drive away), and somewhere that I had yet to visit. So, after living her for almost twenty years, I figured it was about time I went to see what it was all about.
I thought that I could gain some inspiration from a source that I had yet to draw ideas from...the automotive industry. I was interested in this because I have in the past looked at mechanical imagery and geometric styling, so this was just another step in that direction.
I went with my camera in hand, as always, so that I could snap away then sift through the photographs and pick out the ones that inspire me the most.
Here are the first two pieces that I created from my trip to the Motor Museum, the first being the stitched outline of a car, which I was drawn to because of the prominent features that work well when shown in a simple outline. The second image shown is a car horn, I went through and selected sections of it and coloured these by hand, this was an extremely time consuming process however I am pleased with the overall outcome, and have not been put off trying this idea again.
