Royal Pavilion Brighton

Royal Pavilion Brighton
Royal Pavilion Brighton by Nicole Carman

The beautiful Royal Pavilion in Brighton is one of my favourite landmarks. This is a drawing I created simply with pencil and paper. I painted and coloured in layers to give more texture. I then washed over in blues, pinks and purple hues in a screen print style. It is available to buy in my online gallery.

The Royal Pavilion is an exotic palace in the centre of Brighton with a colourful history. Built as a seaside pleasure palace for King George IV in 1815, this historic house mixes Regency grandeur with the visual style of India and China. It has also served as a civic building, First World War hospital, and has become a true icon of Brighton.

Buy Big Wheel and Pier Brighton by Nicole Carman

I’m very excited to be launching a brand new set of Brighton prints available to buy now. In addition to my photography, I have begun to create my own illustrations and screen printing techniques. I really love the texture of these images and the subtle layers of colour that build up.

The first in my Brighton Art series is called ‘Big Wheel and Pier Brighton‘. Sadly the big wheel was only in Brighton for 5 years but it was a great addition to the city. In my print I have kept the Palace Pier in monochrome from my original photograph and played around with the colour orange and used some large paintbrush styles.

You can buy this print framed/unframed or as a canvas. All my works are printed with the best quality inks and signed. Please visit my online shop for full price and size details.
