James Chambury A Windy Day – St Benet’s Abbey
James did many sketches of St Benet’s Priory, fascinated by how in the flat landscape it looks are more immense than it actually is. This reminds us how impressive it must have been in the surrounding area before it was destroyed. Here James has captured how fresh and bright the colours can seem in the patches of sunlight you get on days of showers and squalls. The trees on the left bending in the wind are still in sunlight but the shower is about to hit them. James has captured the moment when the ruins are just entering the shadow cast by the storm cloud, and expresses how the light can changed dramatically from one moment to the next on a windy, showery day.
