Underpass 1 = Finished!

The unifying theme through a lot of the artwork going up at Cowgate Underpass is water. We played with the idea that the surrounding area was reclaimed from the sea and quite possibly, due to climate change, may return there. The underpass patterns are reminiscent of fish scales, albeit very colourful fish!

Underpass project – The Ninth Legion

Jason has been out painting again, along with Stu from Blok Collective! This weeks character painting is queen Boudica and the Ninth Legion! Although only the outlines of said queen and legion are visible at the moment. Here’s one and a half days worth of progression for you to feast your eyes on.

The Massacre of the Ninth Legion took place during the revolt against Roman rule in Britain launched by Boudica, queen of the Iceni of Norfolk. Approximately 80% of the Roman soldiers were killed in the battle. It is believed that the Ninth Legion were based at Longthorpe Tower, Peterborough from about 66AD.
