About the Image

Oxford Paintings don’t tend to include Spaceships.

Although by spaceship I actually mean student union Bar! Confused? I was at first. I’d heard reference to Keble’s Spaceship but couldn’t quite picture how it would look.

Until I saw it. And then? Well, it’s kinda obvious isn’t it?

The painting was created as part of a commission of paintings for prints. The intention being to show a contemporary side to Oxford and one that students would find familiar.

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.
