Devereux Chambers


Oil on canvas measuring

“I had studied this building in the Middle Temple for some time, but it never quite had the right atmosphere. Until that is, one Saturday morning when I went to paint a picture of the nearby fountain and noticed this amazing light and sky colour. Luckily I had a spare canvas with me so painted Devereux Chambers instead. I’ve been looking for the unique ‘mauve-blue-purpley’ sky ever since, but have never seen it again. I wonder if it’s something to do with the reflected light from the building? The colours in the shadows were interesting too!” Jack Russell MBE
