Our home town church, the NG kerk Aberdeen turns 160 this year and in celebration I have donated a painting of the lovely building, done en Plein air toward the later part of the day on Saunders 300gsm cold pressed using W&N pure water colours.

Just browsing through the archives and found these. The contour sketch done from life of a model and given a painterly finish with washes in the second image. I was trying out an effect with the paint which didn't quite yield too satisfactorily, but i liked the drawing and the combined method.
Then below is probably the largest canvas I have used, this was a commission which I did quite a long time ago for someone, I also quite liked the assignment though I would probably do it very differently had I to do it again. Second image shows the scale and my old apartment door by comparison.
