The Doom Painting in St.Thomas's Church, Salisbury
21 March 2020 | St. Thimas's Church, Salisbury
Around 1470 this amazing Doom Painting was painted in St. Thomas's but then was covered with whitewash during the Reformation. In 2019 a big restoration programme has restored the vibrant colours and it seems to sparkle in the sunlight. Doom paintings were illustrated with the colours being applied to wet concrete making the colours last as they were embedded into the walls rather than being painted on the surface. Doom paintings typically depict the Last Judgement.
