The 4950 Painting Challenge continues
This week my focus for the 4950 Painting Challenge is Buckingham’s Chantry Chapel. Although with a working title of #4 Gate, it’s really been the Chapel Gates. The Chantry Chapel is the original home of The Royal Latin School and is now preserved by the National Trust. The building itself is 15th Century, although this gate is probably much newer than that.
Here it is as a work in progress.
And the finished piece!
I’m thinking of calling it Chantry Gateway…
but that might change, you know how these things go.
In January 2018 I set myself a challenge to create 50 paintings in a year. All the paintings are/will be 49 sq inches and are of architecture details. The buildings used are near my base of Buckingham in the UK. They will be a mix of commonplace features, like drains, along with some unique elements found nowhere else, like the Twisted Chimney on The Manor House in Church Street.
The full list of architectural features I intend to paint are here. Some, such as the chimney, I’ve already selected what I’m going to do. Others are to be determined. I’ve now got a number of images sorted, some I’ve a shortlist but still to make a final decision. Many slots still require filling, the most imminent is a Brace, I know I’ve seen them around, just can’t quite remember where.
So, there’s still a chance to influence my work.
