Bus Queue – A4 Digital Print
About the image:
With the growth in car ownership, buses are becoming less frequent, well they are in rural areas, but in cities they still have an essential place. They are a cheap way of getting around, especially if you hate to drive in heavy traffic.
The downside of bus travel has always been the Bus Queue.
Waiting in all weathers can be wearing, especially when there is no shelter or the queue is long and the buses packed. So seeing a line of buses makes me smile…
Even buses have to queue sometime. So when I saw nose to tail buses on a London Street, I had to snap the bus queue and turn it into a painting.
The original picture Bus Queue was created in England in 2015. This is a digital print copy on A4 watercolour paper.
How the original Painting was created
All copyrights are retained by the artist, and that the artwork cannot be reproduced without consent from Cathy Read.This is an A3 Giclee Print. The original picture was initially drawn with pencil onto watercolour paper. These lines were then drawn over using masking fluid and then painted using watercolour paint and acrylic ink. Salt was also used in the process and some of the ink blown around using a straw. Once the painting was dry the masking fluid was removed to reveal the finished painting.
