In the Belly of the Whale

Comments

Has a real sense of the enormousness you describe

I like this very much Rupert - the colours and your loose style of painting.

Wonderful Rupert, you have a beautiful touch with watercolour.

14 x 22 inches watercolour and pencil on Langton rough unstretched paper. At night, this huge church with its vast ribbed wooden ceiling, calls to mind the story of Jonah in the belly of a whale. This is only one of the aisles but I was totally captivated by the cavernous opening into the chantry at the far end.
