Artist's Description

Situated in the city of Turku in south-west Finland, this beautiful stone cathedral was painted here using acrylic paints on a stretched canvas. Shown here on on a bright sunny day, the artist says that the most difficult part of this painting was capturing what looks like a shadow within a shadow around the door area of the cathedral. He is very happy with his result, although he admits that it is hard to see this effect flourish in digital reproduction.
Turku Cathedral is regarded as Finland’s most valuable monument of architectural history. The construction took place in stages up to the first decades of the 19th century. The greatest changes in appearance happened in the 15th and 16th centuries. Most of the present interior dates back to the restoration after the Great Fire of Turku (1827).
