This rainy London canvas print features a true classic - the red routemaster bus. This is the style that's still recognizable to so many. And you'll still find some of them in private use but the last of the heritage routes that used these vintage buses was shuttered in recent years. I feel fortunate to have gotten to ride one of them on one of my trips to London some years back. It had been a long-standing dream. When I was quite small, my uncle and aunt spent a summer in Europe including, predictably, some time in London. When we visited their home, I always wanted to play with the souvenir routemaster toy bus my uncle had gotten. Having been around small children since, I know how nice he was being letting me handle it at all! I probably also saw pictures of them in the slides from their trip but it was the little toy that made the biggest impression on me. Of course, there are still modern double decker buses in London and the latest ones are a modern nod to the routemaster but nothing beats the real thing!
This artwork depicts a classic routemaster bus in service on Regent Street, a landmark shopping district in London's West End. The city lights and the rainy streets very much remind me of my visits to London. Even on my shortest trip there, a long weekend, it rained, so it's hard for me to imagine London without sloshing around a bit.
Does this routemaster bus artwork remind you of time in London? Perhaps you've visited or call London home? I hope you'll take a moment to share what caught your attention in this rainy London canvas print.
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.

What People Are Saying
I'm a Hill and when I saw this I just had to buy it. I have so many fond memories of spending summer weeks down in Montezuma at Nanny and Paw's store. I was so sad when the flood filled the store with water but it was a testament to the community when so many banded together to help out afterwards. Just know I bought this print to frame and take to Nanny so she can enjoy it as well. Thank you so much for making this ❤️

She Loves It!
My girlfriend just received the print, and she loves it! We both love the vibrant colors, and Forsyth Park, Savannah in general, and Tybee Island are special to us because she lives in NC and I live in FL, so every once in a while we’ll meet in the middle and explore together.
Thank you so much!
