About the painting:

The painting of Wolfson College, Oxford – the view from Rainbow Bridge is the first of my Oxford series. A familiar sight, on the bank of Cherwell. You’re standing, viewing the college from the Rainbow Bridge. Below, the river flows, along with a few punts. It’s a grey day, so not too many punts are around.

Creation: 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.
