Millennium Bridge – Original Painting
About the Image:
The Millennium Bridge spans the River Thames by the Tate Modern. The footbridge gained notoriety when it was first opened due to an engineering flaw which caused it to bounce and wobble. Now the issue has been resolved and it’s a peaceful way to cross the Thames and see the city.
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.
