Here's work-in-progress #3 of the
Dominican refectory on the Great Stour river at Canterbury. Now
working on the river surface, reflections and cast shadows - important
to show the building reflections vertical and in the correct
position. To do this I have indicated the lights and darks using Caran d'Ache coloured pencils ready to brush in. Not long to go now!

Here is the finished watercolour of a view looking along the path on the south elevation. I positioned myself on a low stool whilst drawing thus the low eye-level which helps to create a dramatic viewpoint. Image size 340 x 300mm on stretched 140Ib Arches NOT paper.

This time it's St
Andrew the Apostle at Framingham Earl. This lovely Grade 1 listed
medieval parish church is built mainly of flint with a 12th century
tower and 13th century south porch. The sunlight was perfect during my
visit and brings out the subtle colours in the flint stonework. 230 x
350mm on 140Ib Saunders Waterford cold pressed. I spent far too long on this one but I really enjoyed rendering the trees and foreground details so it was worth it!
