Light Show Kolner Dom Cologne Cathedral
Since I like architecture a friend told me if I ever visited Germany I need to see the Dom Cologne Cathedral in Cologne, Germany (thanks Alex!!). I did a search on it and found info and pictures. The cathedral has many beautiful stain glass windows that often make the cathedral a light show. This is a picture I found of the Cathedral that illustrated what the light show can resemble. I was taken back by all the colors that bathed every thing. I had to try to paint this, because it was so breath-taking. In this picture one is looking up at the ceiling of the cathedral. The ceiling (which is plaster) looks like stain glass with the way the colors reflect on it. To the right is one of the main supports for the cathedral ceiling covered in the multi-hued reflections. I drew, inked, and painted this with watercolor Halloween night waiting in between kids coming to my door.
