As part of the research for my next painting, I went on a tour of the Lantern in Ely Cathedral, today. I took Hazel's new camera, so I could photograph the light falling on the brickwork, as luckily it was a sunny day. I was on the same level as all those painted angels which I have looked at many times, but always from a great distance. We had to climb over a 150 steps to get to the top, where we had amazing views across the fens and beyond.
Once the photos are printed, I hope to start putting them together to build a composition which I can start working from, for the painting 'Another Year' (once I have my wretched model of the Cathedral finished as well)
