During the Coronavirus lockdown I have taken the opportunity to return to my own painting. I have been focusing on the interior of the Pantheon dome in Rome. I visited Rome many years ago and the Pantheon made a lasting impression. I am fascinated by the subtle variation in colours, the pure abstract design and the deceptive feeling of tromp l’oeil. When I visited, it had recently rained and there was a small pool of water on the floor where the rain had fallen through the oculus. I also visited St Peter’s, but it is the Pantheon that I remember.
