ST MARY'S CHURCH, Doddington, Cambridgeshire. UK


St Mary's Churchyard: Pigment liner and watercolour.

Friday night cricket practice has began, taking both of my boys with it!
It was such a fine evening I decided to take my sketchbook rather than come back home after dropping them off.

I drove into Doddington village and before long I was parked aside St Mary's church. Like a magnet, churches seem to pull me toward them, and the churchyard looked so pretty in the dappled sunlight I was not about to resist!

What a great way to spend that time, much better than driving home and back. I really like the roof lines peeking through the tree tops. Nice job.

Oh that's lovely, I like your drawing style very much. And so nice to *meet* someone via Everyday Matters who also lives in my area (well, nearly) - I'm in Suffolk.

Thankyou Sarah. Suffolk!...I just spent a whole weekend there with an art friend sketching our way through a couple of national trust homes. You can see the entries on this blog.
