Weekly Photo Challenge: Grand

What a great challenge this week. ‘Grand’ comes in many guises….

This is Thoresby Hall in Nottinghamshire – terribly ornate as well as grand. You can stay here or dine – depending on how ‘grand’ your wallet is, of course.

The Palais des Papes in Avignon – imposingly grand and frankly pretty huge. The hall is amazing – apparently, when it was in full use, the ceiling was dark midnight blue and painted with thousands of gold stars. It was an awesome sight to imagine.

The very lovely Portmeirion in Wales – one of the most bonkers but glorious places I have ever seen. Made up of salvaged architectural pieces from all over Europe and fashioned into such a delightful and colourful little village. I didn’t want to leave.

'Printmaker Nancy Power's work reflects the life around her. Be it a changing rural landscape, the decaying plants in her garden, or her collection of hand crafted ceramics, she finds inspiration from many sources. Deliberately eclectic in subject matter, her work is harmonised by her colour palette and distinctive inking process. Nancy uses the reduction method of lino printmaking; carving away at just one block for each consecutive colour to reveal the final image. By inking from dark to light, as opposed to the more traditional light to dark, Nancy's work has engaging depth and colour layering.'
