Yes Going For The One 1976

Yes Going For The One  1976 This is a triple opening sleeve, about thirty seven inches wide. I mounted a piece of Double Weight Photographic paper to accommodate the album size and washed in a light blue with Photo Dye. With a large bowl Airbrush I sprayed a gradated dark to light blue with Photo dye. On the right side (i.e. the front cover), with Windsor and Newton Permanent White Gouache I airbrushed some clouds. The seven prints of the buildings were cut out and the edges thinned and painted blue. Where each building appeared to overlap these were butt joined. The naked figure was cut out and the back stripped away and sanded to give a very thin edge. The edge was greyed and then montaged with Columbia Cement. The coloured lines were added at the printing stage.
