Imagery inspiration: Pantheon Rome

I was doing some dissertation work and I stumbled across these amazing images of the building Panini painted. I’d not thought to look at the real building because I assumed it wouldn’t be as grand and amazing in photographs, but it is! This stream of light coming down is exactly the type of thing I want to paint with glazing. The light defines the empty space, giving it dimension. And it represents the whole in the building that lets the outside in.
I am going to use these photos as inspiration when I am glazing my paintings. I think that would be a good place to start: just glazing this cylinder of light into the painting. And then also adding colour to the brushstrokes, but focusing the intense glazing on this stream of light.
