Suitcases- Retro Suitcases Ink Illustration

This painting is a new addition to my etsy gallery. Just completed, I used a palette of blues, golds, greens and brown to create a number of different luggage items with a vintage feel. This drawing really reminds me of a luggage hold in one of those old Noir movies, like ‘Strangers on a Train’. I ‘drew’ the cases using a really tiny brush and walnut coloured Sennelier Inks.

I was thinking recently about a drawing I made as a child, which was of an antique store full of old lamps, vintage style furniture etc. I made it with those cool old brush style markers. I was very proud of that drawing! I may yet try to recreate it, but in the mean time it was fun to work on these suitcases. I started off inspired by an old blue case my grandmother had given me when I was a young teenager, and the rest flowed from there
