Regent Street – Original Painting

About the image:

“It will quite eclipse Napoleon.” – said the Prince Regent on seeing architect Nash’s plans for Regent Street in 1811. A sinuous path draws your eye through this Regent Street painting – reminiscent of the intended royal thoroughfare and the world’s first purpose-built shopping centre. As the curved railings meet the road, it carves a sweeping S-shape through the image. Everything heads towards a central vanishing point off to the right.

“And what is around that bend?” I wonder.

I say, “Everything…” But apart from a bus and a taxi heading our way, everthing else turns its back on us, pursuing a course to the distant turn as if to emphasise the disappearing act. Lights frame the bend and an underground sign – its red and white roundel reflected on the passing buses on the right. A third bus is about to vanish around the distant bend. Even the Underground steps seem to beat a determined retreat. Read More

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.
