Part of the 49/50 Painting Challenge.
Sounds like a band name to me.
Number 6 of the 49/50 Challenge or The Twisted Chimney as I’m calling it, follows on from my crooked comment last week. This time it’s a crooked chimney, ok maybe not crooked, but certainly twisted.
The point being it’s not straight.
There was a fashion in the UK to make chimneys more and more elaborate. This one is on the manor house in Church Street, Buckingham. It’s been artfully crafted into a wonderful helix shape. Although the years are showing wear, it’s a thing of beauty. This one’s quite a popular local landmark and so warranted inclusion in the 49/50 challenge.
Here it is as a work in progress.
And in all it’s twisted glory!
I looked for a link to share a bit more information about the twisted chimney but could only find estate agent posts or they’re very dry. This was the best info about the building it’s on that I could find.
Next week’s painting is going to be interesting. Especially as, at time of writing..
I’ve absolutely no idea what I’m going to do next!
This painting is one of the 4950 series. Although many of the paintings have been sold, some are still available.
