Routemaster Bus - London Canvas Print
The subject of this London canvas print is a classic Routemaster bus. I think for a lot of us, when we think of London double-decker buses, this is the type that immediately springs to mind. Most of these vintage buses are in private service these days but a handful are still used for London's heritage bus route. It's possible you were unaware of London's heritage bus route. I know I was until I saw this classic Routemaster bus rumbling its way up the Strand.
This classic London view is where Fleet Street becomes The Strand - Temple Bar - the border of the old city of London. So this was a great spot to capture an iconic piece of London history. The border dragon is sitting atop a monument to Queen Victoria. This is old London in a nutshell to me.
This London canvas art has a vintage color treatment in appreciation for its classic subject. This was also inspired by how much this red bus scene reminds me of old slides I once saw of my uncle's trip to London.

Canvas Prints - Product Information
Stretched canvas prints are a great choice for decorating your home or office. Canvas art is a classic choice that is at home in traditional and modern decor alike.
After the purchase of your canvas print, it is made to your order. The artwork is printed on an acid-free poly/cotton blend canvas. The use of archival inks and substrate means that your canvas art print should last a lifetime without fading or loss of color.
When ordering your print, you have a choice between glossy and matte finishes. While I ordinarily love matte finishes on prints, I do like the sheen that comes on glossy canvas prints. Ultimately I would suggest letting the amount of light in your space guide your choice. In a brightly lit environment, I would lean towards a matte finish to reduce the chance of glare.
There are three wrap styles to choose from for canvas prints. The mirrored wrap choice mirrors and extends the image to the sides of the canvas wrap (without losing any of the original artwork on the front). The majority of the time I would suggest this is the best choice. The other two options are a solid black wrap or white wrap. You can see a preview of each option when selecting wrap color.
After printing, the canvas is stretched over and secured to a wooden frame of 1.5" by 1.5" stretcher bars. The entire production process takes from 10 to 15 business days. Your artwork will arrive in sturdy packaging. The hanging wire will be attached and all hardware necessary to hang your canvas print will be included. Canvas prints are a great ready-to-hang option.
