Welcomes & Octobers

The next addition to my Dublin door series looks at Autumn and the warming colours it brings to the facades of the city. I was born in October, and I love everything about this month (not just the presents!) - the rich colours, the cool crisp air, the crunch of leaves beneath my feet, and the spookiness of Halloween.

Drawing process by Rachel Corcoran

From rough sketch to finished piece - lots and lots of layers! 'Fáilte' is Irish (Gaelic) for 'welcome.'

A speed drawing video - from start to finish.
