The Wedding Bus – A4 Digital Print
About the Image:
The original was created in January 2016. In October 2015 I was wandering around looking for inspiration. Leaving the tube station at Green Park near the Ritz I was on the lookout. I spotted the bikes and 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 I spotted the Wedding buses, there were 3.
I lined up to take the shot.
- The first I mistimed,
- The second was blurred streaks,
- Finally, I managed to get a still blurry but “good enough” composition.
Ah, the beauty of painting! Images can be sharpened!
The original picture was created in England in 2016. This is a digital print copy on A4 watercolour paper.
How the original Painting was created
The original picture was initially drawn with pencil onto watercolour paper. These lines were then drawn over using masking fluid and then painted using watercolour paint and acrylic ink. Salt was also used in the process and some of the ink blown around using a straw. Once the painting was dry the masking fluid was removed to reveal the finished painting.
