Part of the 49/50 Painting Challenge. Find out how it began here.
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!
