Quat Quatta venue illustration
Any of our letterpress wedding invitations can feature our custom venue illustration of Quat Quatta for no additional fee. My illustration captures the building's front facade, highlighting its architectural features and paying attention to details such as the detailing in the verandah and along the roof. The gardens been incorporated to provide context and emphasise its place within the setting.
Note that this drawing also has a version available to use in which the front left driveway trees are omitted, revealing the rest of the building to the left and extending the sweep of the driveway.
Creating the illustration
For this particular illustration, I began by sketching the venue's outline with a pencil and then refined the initial sketch using a pen to produce the final image. In my drawing style I use shading techniques to create form in buildings or depth in a scene. The hedges and trees surrounding the building are depicted with tone to add interest and contrast.
I always try to incorporate greenery or other natural surroundings into my illustrations as this helps to provide depth and context to the image. Incorporating natural elements in the illustration helps to create a sense of grounding and can make the building appear less detached when used in the invitation design.
