|The Saxon Sanctuary|
I finally finished the painting! It is a painting of The Saxon Sanctuary. This church is located in a beautiful little village called Wootton Wawen. It is called “St. Peter’s Wootton Wawen”.
My hubby, Kez, and I went there last night on our way home from Stratford-on-Avon, and we had a lovely evening. We walked around the church and even was able to go inside.
I was able to take some brilliant photos for future paintings, and Kez found a “friend” (A man walking a little dog named “Ben”. By the way, that was the first dog I ever saw that was called a Jack-a-Doodle, cross between a Jack Russell and a poodle.) I should have taken its photo, UGH!
The man was telling Kez all about the little village and what used to be where…. it is such a lovely little place. I may even do a whole painting series about that little village … HMMMM….
This painting is getting me back into the habit of painting every day because I had stopped and was taking watercolour classes. I am not confident in my watercolours, yet, but will continue to do pastel paintings and improve on that. I have found a new excitement to my art, and I am so happy to be painting every day. This painting is a big 10×14″ and is taking a while, but I am enjoying the process.
Look for some new art coming very soon!
