Making of the “All Saints Church 2” in Pontefract 3D Acrylic Painting by Purple Faye

The making of my most recent 3D Acrylic Painting of the All Saints Church in Pontefract, West Yorkshire.

A little history about the All Saints Church –

There has been a church on the site or close by since Anglo Saxon times, it even featured in the Domesday Book survey in the year 1086. The present church was built around the 1300s, but only a few parts of that church now remain. In 1536 when Henry the 8th announced dissolution it sparked an uprising known as the Pilgrimage of Grace, many supporters went to Pontefract to establish themselves in the nearby castle. The then Archbishop of York was preaching in the church at Pontefract and asked for moderation, this had a reverse effect on the congregation and they dragged him from the pulpit and off to the castle. When the civil war took place the church was constantly changing from one side to the other and at one time was reported to have been hit over 60 times by cannon balls. In fact during recent renovations one was found still embedded in one of the walls.

This is the first 3D Acrylic Painting I’ve made in my Pontefract studio as part of my Ponte Project

The next one will be Pontefract Castle so look out for the work in progress of that on Instagram/Facebook/Twitter
