Snow over Old Skelton Church


Inky old skelton church in the snow

After Christmas I developed an idea for cards based on an owl, fairy lights and snow. Inks are mostly used with the addition of a recent gift (masking fluid). The Church built of sandstone in 1785 replaces the original14th Century Church retaining some interior walls. Its in a lovely spot, also I’m still waiting to be introduced to the black cat I painted a few summers ago.

This is larger than A4 (larger than usual) and painted on thicker cartridge paper with watercolours and the addition of the ink line. In all the excitement of controlling washes I seem to have lost the crescent moon hopefully a little atmosphere is depicted.
