Red Right Hand
Inspired by the amazing BBC series: Peaky Blinders, this original oil painting can bring a little bit of Brummie gangster style into your home. Every detail has been carefully considered, from the genuine antique blue glass poison bottle to the reconstructed revolver. Even the time on the pocket watch is significant for a true Peaky Blinders fan.
Assembling the props
The 3D model of Tommy's Webley Service revolver was created from scratch and then printed on a 3D printer. With a lot of sanding and a little paint the gun was ready for the still life.
The gin labels were recreated based on screen shots. These were then affixed to an accurate glass bottle.
Creating the painting
Working in my Northampton studio Peaky Gin has been painted in oils on a rigid support. A grisaille underpainting was painted first in a traditional style before colour was added.
