Gaudi’s ceiling

7:17 pm - Posted by Rich

Gaudi’s church in Barcelona, the Familia Segrada is an amazing place.  It is, at once, awesome, colorful, subtle, crazy, and has a logic all its own.   A few years ago, my Pamela took a series of fantastic photos, concentrating on the ceiling from many angles.  The shots are mind-blowing, and I could see how easily many of them could be used as springboards for intricate abstract designs.  I finally got around to doing the initial tracing from one of the photos, a laborious task.   It is now ready to project on to watercolor paper, and I can already see how strong it is going to be.  In the absence of any tight deadlines on the commercial front, I’ll devote some time to art for art’s sake.
