Abbey Corner, Bath

Abbey_corner_bath

Bath, England, 22" x 15".

Maybe an unusual subject to choose just the corner of the well known Bath Abbey rather than some more prominent angle.  I thought it worked well with the light coming from the side allowing alternate light and dark bands coming down the pictures.  The rear of the Abbey was painted wet in wet - the base was still damp and then I used thicker darker paint for the windows and architectural details.  Also I introduced some emphasised contrast between the background buildings and the registry office on the right.

This picture is currently being exhibited at the Annual Bath Society of Artists Exhibition 2015 at the Victoria Art Gallery in central Bath (closes 27th June 2015).
