It is a busy place up there, Tom.
Tom Wilson: It's all happening!
Very impressive, Tom.
Tom Wilson: It is indeed - the whole palace (or what one can see of it) is pretty sumptuous!

Did you lie on your back for this one, Tom?
Tom Wilson: Nope - but the painter must have done! smile
When looking up is such a treat!
Tom Wilson: Always pays smile

Tom Wilson: Presumably they were paid by the square metre smile

I think it is easy to overlook the physical challenge for the painters of these ceilings Tom. It must have been difficult and demanding.
Tom Wilson: Oh, indeed - lying on his back on a dodgy scaffold!
I always wonder if painters of ceilings like this had more paint running down their arms than actually made its way on to the ceiling.
Tom Wilson: I imagine they came away pretty splattered!
I've painted three floors here but not yet a ceiling. my bed is too low, I guess.
Tom Wilson: You'll need a scaffold, Mary! smile
