Brighton Royal Pavilion

Royal Pavilion Brighton
Buy Brighton Royal Pavilion by Nicole Carman

The Royal Pavilion is my favourite building in Brighton. I love the shape, based on the Taj Mahal in India and the intricate detail. This artwork is my pencil drawing which I then washed over in blues and added some pink and purple hues as well as some seagulls!

The Brighton Royal Pavilion is available to buy in my online shop framed/unframed or canvas. All my works are created using the best quality inks and are signed.


Passacaglia and West Pier Brighton Murmuration

Passacaglia and West Pier Brighton Murmuration
Buy Passacaglia and West Pier Murmuration by Nicole Carman

The Brighton Passacaglia is a huge curved abstract sculpture that sits on Brighton seafront and I love seeing the old West Pier behind it. I created this piece mixing up 2 of my photographs and collages with some drawing. It’s available as a Gicleé Print or a Canvas using the highest quality inks. For prices and available sizes please visit my Brighton and Hove Photos shop where you can buy it online.

Created by Charles Hadcock, the Passacaglia is constructed from recycled cast iron, weighs 20 tonnes and is five meters high. This lovely sculpture is made from tiles in the form of a tile tessellation, inspired by the limestone terraces at Black Head, County Clare in Ireland. 

Some tiles are flat, others curved and all have textured surfaces that resemble Yorkstone paving. The reverse side of each tile reveals the nuts and bolts of the construction. The title of the sculpture comes from an Italian musical description. Hadcock wanted to describe the physicality of the sea and the expanse of the horizon.

My thanks to Public Sculptures of Sussex website.

Brighton Big Wheel and Lollipop – BRAND NEW IMAGE!

Just finished my image of our lovely Brighton Big Wheel that sadly was taken down. Hope you like it!

It’s a mixture of two photographs – one is the big wheel itself which sat on the edge of the beach;  the other is the wheel seen in the reflection of a shop on the pier that sells Brighton Rock,  candy floss, flying saucers and other sugary delights including the big striped lollipop!
