A medieval kitchen roof with a cantilevered sky light chimney : Gainsborough Old Hall, Lincolnshire.
Birch plywood 20cm x 22cm on Kanoko paper using Lawrence linseed oil.
This is the fourth study in a series of the Gainsborough Old Hall in Lincolnshire. I started the series after distributing the Baren leaflets to the Arts Centre and as I left the Arts officer proposed that I hold an exhibition of woodprints. Flabbergasted, I asked what sort of subject matter the patrons were interested in. He implied that they seldom had local studies, so off I went to review this magnificent hall : a meeting place of the Pilgrim Fathers before they left to the New World and where John Wesley preached a sermon to ‘a rude, wild multitude’.
