I’ve recently completed another double commission for a new Wetherspoons hotel in Ripon, North Yorkshire.
The two paintings, in acrylic on board, are each 4 feet wide by 3 feet high. One shows the three doorways at the west end of Ripon Cathedral with the shadows of nearby trees cast across the facade by the late afternoon sun. The other is of a pair of boats moored in the canal basin close to the centre of the city. The hotel is ‘The Unicorn’ in the corner of Ripon’s market place and is due to open in early April 2011.
