A bit about Worcester Cathedral

Worcester Cathedral is on the banks of the river Severn. I stood on the opposite bank and behind me was the Worcestershire Cricket ground, where, as I worked I could hear the popping of the cricket balls as the players practiced in the nets. In front of me flowed the river with a few canal boats and leisure craft drifting by, with, beyond that on the other bank, rose the exulted 62m (203.41ft) tower of Worcester Cathedral which was built between 1084-1504.

 Below that, I added a few figures on the old tow path to give it a bit of scale and humanity. I just can’t imagine architecture without people – I just don’t understand it when i see architectural painting without a few figures dotted about. Finally i added one of the canal boats.

Looking at it I felt I had enough on me to work up a final painting back in the studio. I had hoped to have time to look around Worcester Cathedral itself.

I wouldn’t have minded seeing the tomb of King John (24 December 1166 – 19 October 1216), he who reluctantly signed

The Magna Carta in 1215, then promptly ignored it all a few months later. I was however too busy painting. Maybe next time.

What is a giclee print?

Giclee is a very high quality print process used by galleries and artists for exclusive limited editions. This Giclee process uses 12 true pigment artist colours (ultra marine, ochre etc) rather than the standard four dye colours in normal printing, so Giclee delivers greater depth in colour, tonal values and no yellowing over time.
