Commission piece - De La Salle Monastery, Castletown

This acrylic on canvas painting is the first of a series of five commissioned pieces (all 50cm x 70cm) of local landmarks. I struggled with how to handle the large amount of flat painted gray walls in this work but think the end result is not as insipid as it might have been. (The large expanse of gray also makes it difficult for my digital camera to focus sharply).  I've now started on the next painting in the series and hope it causes less problems than this one did.
