The former shearers’ quarters (pictured) at the historic property Cheshunt, has been the subject of 3 paintings for me so far, and I have another well underway that I aim to complete (along with a few others) when I return to Tasmania next month.
Instead of painting the building itself, I concentrated on what was inside and what the view was of the outside world from within.
Painting 1: Silence at the Table, featured a scene from inside the first room (the 2 windows to the right of the outside doorway).
Painting 2: Silent Light, featured the window furthest left.
Painting 3: Stained Glass, Cheshunt, is of a pane of glass from (inside) the window, second from the left.
Painting 4: (under construction) is of the same room as the first painting, but it’s a view of the door from inside the room.
This building is fascinating and it’s full of potential. Such ‘goldmine’ subjects as these deserve more than a passing glance!
