St.John’s W.Ealing

So Godfrey Rust demands the church in water colour. From the S.East. Half kidding, but 30m after leaving VW West London I have a sketch by eye from a raised bed at the requested compass point. First I try copying a Newfoundland sketch of Peter Scheeler’s, just to try to change my style a bit. Then two painted sketches. One from the drawing, another using Google Street to get a more dynamic perspective. Godfrey liked the composition – the church shown ‘in community’ but separated by the question marks of the street lights. Borders stay in fashion, and I break out of them at the vertex of the roof. I’m happy with the tiny bit of looseness in the greenery, bottom right. Need more looseness. To get more better.
