Description

The prints are made from an image of an original oil painting of All Saints Church which I painted in 2017.

I developed the painting by first completing a plein air colour study of the church, church grounds and sky. I planned the composition by trying different thumbnail sketches of the church to determine the best viewpoint before setting up my field easel and canvas board.

Working on a 12″ x 16″ canvas board (the same as the planned final painting) I was able to establish the main tonal shifts across the building and really understand the different colour variations of the sandstone.

I took a series of reference photographs and managed to develop the colour study to a point where I was happy before rain stopped play!

Back in the studio, the colour study was invaluable as I progressed what would be the final painting on a fine detail canvas.

While it proved to be time consuming, I made the decision to accurately depict the stonework stone by stone. The light coloured mortar between the stones created some interesting grid patterns and a looser, suggestive approach wouldn’t have done this masonry justice.

The details of the arched windows, gargoyles, castellated tower and gravestones were all great fun to paint and I think these details help bring the painting to life.

If you would like to know more about this particular piece or organise a studio visit to see the quality of the prints in person then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
