After Callet, Reni and Leary

oil on domed ceiling - 250 x 2650cm

I painted this mural in 2015 following the large scale work of the King’s Theatre Dome painting. This one was entirely my design and execution and following a design briefing was based on 2 Antoine-Frances Callet paintings, A Charles Meynier work and Guido Reni’s Aurora painting from the Casino dell’ Aurora Pallavicini-Rospigliosi, in Rome. It also includes many elements of my own. A trickier shape to the dome this time with steeper sides and more of a sense of the scene moving round the dome. Another intense work experience where the level of practice it enforces has been so valuable.
