Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

The Cable car across the Thames at Greenwich in London has to be one of the best ways to see the city. The elegant supports are sculptures in themselves with the tiny pod swinging on the cables. It's sponsored by an airline, and next to flying in a plane, it come a pretty close second.

How it's made
The picture is painted on watercolour paper. I start off with a detailed pencil drawing. I then draw over the lines with masking fluid before painting it with a watercolour wash which gets 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.

Materials used:

Watercolour and Acrylic ink on Watercolour paper
