About the Wedding Bus painting:  

Everybody loves a Wedding and the old red London buses, so why not combine the two? Wedding Transport has always been an issue, espcially if the wedding venue and reception are held in different places.

One October day, I was wandering around looking for inspiration. Leaving the tube station at Green Park near the Ritz I was on the lookout. After spotting some bikes and I moved around to get a better angle. The bikes were close to a tourist bus stop, so I took a few pictures of those first. Then moved on looking for something else.
Thats when the Wedding buses came along, all three of them.
I lined up to take the shot and missed it completely. Quickly I took another and succeeded at capturing blurred streaks. One last shot, and I captured…

This is the point where I should dazzle you with an astounding tale of the perfect photograph, but I’m an artist, not a photographer. The final picture was still blurry but a “good enough” composition.

You can sharpened an image, that’s the beauty of paintings!



Care: Display under glass. Keep painting away from moisture, heat and bright lights or direct sunlight

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.
