Cemetery Junction Arch
The best way to improve any skill is to practice practice, practice.
So I've been practicing my architectural painting skills on a number of places I know well including year g at Cemetery Junction.
This first painting is a simple view of the arch and cemetery, ignoring the surrounding roads.
Then I decided to get creative and cover the arch in colour; perhaps it's a projected light show or maybe a crochet covering, or just a figment of my imagination.
I shared the paintings online and JAHA - Junction Arch Heritage and Arts saw them and sent me a message
"your paintings made us smile, can we include them in our Heritage Open Day?"
Of course I said yes but I didn't have the time or capacity to get them printed, so I gifted the images and JAHA got them printed and they were exhibited on 19th September 2021.
I was running an open studio on the Wokingham Arts Trail so didn't get to the exhibition, but I got messages from friends who did and I got lots of wonderful feedback.
My hope is that they might sell in the coming months to raise money for JAHA and their aims to turn the arch into a hub for the arts.
