Do you recognise all the landmarks in our Features of Fleetwood? This design is a multi-media composition, created with analogue drawing and digital artwork.
Features of Fleetwood
What can you spot in Features of Fleetwood? There’s the Upper and Lower Lighthouses – both still working today – which together guide ships into port. Heading towards the docks is the former Customs House building – today it’s Fleetwood Museum.
In the historic quarter of the seafront is the beautiful and distinctive Mount Pavilion. It’s where Decimus Burton once stood with Sir Peter Hesketh Fleetwood to lay out the radiating streets of the Victorian town. Of course Fleetwood is also a seaside destination so the painting is topped off with the crest of a wave.
How the Features of Range is created
It takes years of experience to create a design like this. To decide on the distinctive features, scale them to fit, and create a unique image including elements of the town.
Each of the scenes in the ‘Features of’ range starts out as a hand-drawn sketch. Planned out with traditional skill, photos are used as reference. Each of the landmarks is carefully selected and positioned in the finished montage.
The next stage is to combine the analogue craftsmanship of the initial drawing with modern digital technology to create a finished piece of artwork.
Prints from our original paintings, drawings and designs make perfect presents for anyone who loves the Fylde Coast. Seaside gifts for Christmas, birthdays and just because. Why not show someone that you care?
The original design is created right here on the Fylde Coast by our artist, Derek Littlewood.
