Southwell Minster series – 2

Began repainting a view of Minster through the north gate, off Church Street. Hadn’t liked the initial painting – too ‘safe’. So had built up layers of texture and obscured most of my early details. I wanted to retain some of the play of light through the foliage on the right – the orange was intended to convey a gloriously warm summer afternoon with the heat radiating off everything. Abstracted foreground areas but retained the figurative form of the cathedral.  Pleased with end result.
