Waterfalls A5 Print
Amy McGurk - Waterfalls A5 Print
One of many beautiful waterfalls in Mindo, Ecuador. This was originally a quick 5 minute sketch drawn on location. Painted later as we were getting quite wet from the spray.
Print based on a watercolour and ink painting and printed on 100% recycled paper.
Leeds based travel illustrator Amy McGurk documents her travels throughout her detailed and colourful sketchbooks. Using watercolour and ink, she creates lasting impressions of the places she has visited. With a particular focus on the nuances of local wildlife and nature, Amy uses reference photographs from her hikes through unfamiliar landscapes. As well as being inspired by nature, she also aims to capture and illustrate an array of cultural experiences and landscapes experienced on her travels.
Having studied art GCSE, Amy then developed her practice through careful study, playful experimentation and a love of the craft of travel illustration. Her watercolour and ink paintings are self-taught through experimentation and observational techniques.
