About the image:
Bus Queues are awful, aren't they? They’re a necessary evil if you have no car.
With the growth in car ownership, buses are becoming less frequent, well they are in rural areas, but in cities they still have an essential place. They are a cheap way of getting around, especially if you hate to drive in heavy traffic.
The downside of bus travel has always been the Bus Queue.
Waiting in all weathers can be wearing, especially when there is no shelter or the queue is long and the buses packed. So seeing a line of buses makes me smile…
Even buses have to queue sometime. So when I saw nose to tail buses on a London Street, I had to snap the bus queue and turn it into a painting.

The picture is painted on watercolour paper. The image is created with masking fluid before painting it with watercolour wash covered with clingfilm. Once this is removed the picture is further developed using acrylic inks which are left to dry before the masking is removed to reveal the final picture.
