Watercolour on watercolour paper, 11 3/4" x 8 1/4"
The really wonderful feature, at least to me, of gothic architecture, is the flying butress. The magnificent stone arches that transfer the weight of the building away from the walls and down through the pillars. They allowed the medieval architects to incorporate huge windows to flood the cathedral with light. This painting shows a detail of the chapter house built at the east end of the cathedral. Oh and if you hadn't guessed it, this is another painting for my exhibition!
