St Marys Church, Yate


Landscape Watercolour of Yate, 15" x 11"

The entrance leading up to St Mary's Church in Yate, near to where I live.  I pass this church every day in to work and took a reference photo in late afternoon as the basis of my sketch.  I left out quite a bit of detail, the village hall in the middle, a bench on the green, but I think they would have detracted from the scene.  I also tried a bit of scratching our with a knife to define the side of the road on the right.  You have to time this just right - too soon while the paper is still very wet, and the paint seeps back into the line.
