Exeter Cathedral

Mural for Exeter City Council offices 2006

Done in photographic style to preserve the architectural details.  I took many photographs on sunny light days to see which angle to present. The angle chosen shows the angle of turrets up the roof, the left tower with shadow on east side. For a sensible quick start, I had the chosen photograph enlarged onto acetate, then marked and traced architectural outlines onto an 8ft x 4ft board. All aspects of scene are recreated from my photographs.  Having a large area gives much scope for adding detail.  My three adult children are also incorporated into the visitors.  This is one of two murals for ECC; the other being Exeter High Street.
