Ely Cathedral

ely.jpgEly Cathedral is one of my favourites in England. I love the painted ceiling of the nave which was completed in the 19th century by two different artists. It is possible to spot the place where the second artist took up after the first one died - if you are very observant and look really, really closely - which is a bit tricky, given the height of the ceiling. We have visted Ely every time we have come to England. This time I took time to just sit and look and tried my hand at a little architectural sketching. I am still a bit shy at sketching in public but it was an interesting exercise.

Thanks for the visual effects Robyn, it's almost like being there. I envy you - in England! How happy you must be!

Hello Robyn. I found my way to this post via a meandering search in the EDM group ... Interested to hear that you're so fond of Ely, since I am a fellow WetCanvasser and live just a few minutes' walk from Ely cathedral. :-)
