The Royal Pavilion is my favourite building in Brighton. I love the shape, based on the Taj Mahal in India and the intricate detail. Earlier this year Prince Harry and Meghan Markle came down to Brighton in their new roles as Duke and Duchess of Sussex. They walked around the Pavilion and its gardens on a lovely sunny afternoon and of course lots of photos of them were taken. I thought it would be fun to have them in a Royal Pavilion print but I didn’t want to simply use a photograph so I took pencil to paper and I drew the building. I then washed it over in blues and added some pink and purple hues as well. I then placed a photograph of them in the pavilion gardens and slipped in a ‘Kiss Me’ love heart sweet.

It was built in stages for the Prince Regent between 1787 and 1823. This magnificent royal pleasure palace was revered by fashionable Regency society and is still a distinctive landmark for vibrant Brighton & Hove today.
