Churches in the Landscape

It is no real surprise that Churches offer the painter a great subject, often as the focal point of a painting.

Looking through some of my watercolours of the past few years there are many with Churches featured in them. The beautiful architecture of Churches and their often prominent locations provides an exciting subject for me in many paintings.

Some of these are painted as they may have been in the past, to help illustrate family history events , whilst others just bring the subject together in a pleasing way (to me anyway!).

I have gathered together in this large post some from my archives of painting from various locations around Europe.

I hope  you enjoy seeing them, I am sure many will have visited them on their own holidays.

October on the Côte d’Azur

Well back in the South of France again, this time in splendid October weather. October is often a great time of year to be in this area, with blue skies and a temperature of 25 C.we ave also been lucky enough to have been invited to a wedding in a beautiful Chateau near Le Muy.

Not a lot of time to paint but here are afew nonetheless. We also managed a quick boat trip from St Maxime to St Tropez. It is the best way to get to St Tropez,avoiding the traffic. Quick lunch in the little back streets of St Tropez and then back to the ferry.

it is so good to enjoy the beautiful weather at this time of year and the Wedding was just terrific!
