Walk the Dome – Original Painting
About the Image:
The Dome sits by the Thames. It’s a fascinating structure and there’s even a bridge you can walk along that goes right over the top of the dome. I’m intrigued by the dome, especially the supports. That it’s all held up with cables attached to these poles. They’re like weird looking legs.
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.
