Ripon is fourth smallest city in England. The town is snug, cosy, and warm even in winter :-) .
Years ago, the Ripon cathedral had a shocking impact on me. I was walking through the narrow streets of the town not expecting anything like this... suddenly fully illuminated in the golden sun rays of the sinking sun at the end of a curvy stretch of a narrow street stood an enormous, gilded looking, cathedral. I was in awe and loved this image! At this time I had only a film camera with me, and remember that the video was quite good; however, I don't have it any more...
This painting was done after my second visit to Ripon in the Summer of 2014.
The painting is mounted, and the mounted dimensions are 40 x 30 cm (~16 x 12 inch), and it fits in regular frames of the size 40 x 30 cm (16 x 12 inch).
I have painted on a very sturdy sheet of Hahnemuele mould-made, acid free, age resistant paper (450 g/square meter, 210lbs) using artists quality coloured pencils and acrylic paints. The painting is few times varnished to protect it from airborne pollutants and UV damage.
The painting comes with my certificate of authenticity.
