A Roman work in progress ...
A departure from British houses, but a return to an old favourite.
It is still at the blocking in stage.
What caught my attention was the Naples yellow colouring of the walls that more or less matched the colour of the postcard of the manuscript of his sonnet Bright Star which was propped on a shelf in my studio. I photocopied it and got snipping. From that star came the idea of using a National Geographic photo of a galaxy for the interior of the flat where Keats and Severn lived for six months until Keats's death in February 1821.
Mmmmmm .... not sure where this is going yet but for what it's worth I will put it up if only to prove I am not slacking!
