22 Gaol Bolt – Original Painting

About the Image:

The original image took me a while to find. I had my list of intended painting subjects and this one, Bolt, was particularly hard to find, which surprised me. Bolts are common place aren’t they? The trouble is, they tend to be on the inside and I wanted the images I used to be in places where people could see them easily, without needing to “apply with” or some such inconvenience. This one is just inside the building. Finding a bolt that was in public view without requiring special permission had me stumped. I eventually found this one, and it is probably the single most appropriate image for the building it secures. Can you guess where it is? It would have been a feature those who went there would be acutely aware of. Thankfully, not so much now. The Gaol Bolt Painting is in the Old Gaol in Buckingham.
Creation: The image is created using masking fluid, then painted with a watercolour wash and covered with clingfilm. Once this is removed the picture is further developed using acrylic inks and building up layers, which are left to dry before the masking is removed to reveal the final picture.
