Four B’s – Original Painting
About the Image:
Four items beginning with B are with the scene of traffic is crossing Chelsea Bridge. A bus follows a motorbike between the iron studded lane dividers. In the distance the iconic Battersea Power station is framed by the support cables. Its yellow towers mingled with cranes as work continues on the restoration. There are more features beginning with B in the painting, once you start looking, but 4 seemed the right number.
How the image is created: Masking fluid is painted onto watercolour paper to create an image. This is covered with a watercolour wash and covered with clingfilm. The picture is further developed using acrylic inks once the film is removed. The masking is removed after several layers are added and allowed to dry. Revealing the final picture.
