Time lapse watercolour painting of Big Ben

Painting of Big Ben, the clock towers and the Houses of Paliament - ©2018- Cathy Read - 61 x 61cm Watercolour and acrylic ink

When I was deciding on this weeks Painting of the week, I remembered I’d taken some video when I was creating this Watercolour painting of Big Ben. .

At exhibitions and evnts, I’m often asked how the painting are created, so, rather than write about it, I decided to show you.By editing the clips together. I start with a photograph that I’ve taken and transfer the image to paper. I then mask over all the lines. When the masking is dry, I start painting, there’s some cling film and salt involved in the process. How?

I’ll let the video continue the story.. .

With our enforced isolation, I’m creating more videos to make up for the lack of exhibitions. Why not subscribe to my Youtube Channel and tell me what vidoes you’d like to see in the comments.
