Lostwithiel Methodist Chapel - Rose & Indian Yellow
The the green patina on the ogee, octagonal copper roof of the Lostwithiel United Free Methodist Church was the 'ping' of colour that gave me the starting point for this series of artworks. It was the start of the abstract idea of adding 'false' colour to a familiar view.
I have taken a photograph, reduced the image to black and white and then printed it out onto cartridge paper. 2 stencils are cut; one in the shape of the building and one the shape of the background/sky. The building shaped stencil is placed over the building of digital print and the blue of the sky airbrushed on. The process is reversed for the colours on the building.
Although the process can be repeated, each piece is an original.
