The Dome of the King’s theatre being primed in preparation for painting John Byrne’s design. This was Tuesday the 25th June and has now been drawn in. Blocking in will hopefully start on Monday. Long days and likely to get longer!
I have not posted in a while. Apologies for that but have been extremely busy. As well as completing the Joe Hart painting I have been making preparations for painting the 10 metre diameter dome in the King’s Theatre auditorium in Edinburgh. John Byrne has designed a beautiful image and has asked me to paint it on the dome (http://www.scotsman.com/the-scotsman/scotland/john-byrne-to-create-roof-fresco-at-king-s-theatre-1-2888406. I will not have a long time to do it so I have to be fully prepared which includes painting a mock up about 8ft in diameter and gathering a small team of artists. These will include Marion Curle, Celie Byrne, Gayle Bray and most recently a fortuitous find during a visit to this weeks degree show in Fraser Gray, an MFA graduate. A great team. I will try and post some images of the work in progress, small details, as the image is not to be unveiled until the opening of the Edinburgh International Festival.
