I have finally finished my painting of the Priors Door Tympanum at Ely Cathedral - Christ in Majesty. You can tell it has been demanding because I haven't got around to completing my blog. The difficulty has been in the combination of challenges: capturing the personality of the figures, using accurate period colours, making it look three dimensional, creating a stone-like surface and ensuring it looks convincingly aged. I still need to go and try it in situ to be confident it will work. Pete Hotine is hopefully going to help me with this at the beginning of February.
