Sandon Church - Mixed Media.
Mixed media on mountboard, 10 x 14in. A local landmark drawn en plein air on Saturday morning and finished off later in the studio.

Mainly acrylic, inks, crayons and soft pastel, plus a few other oddments.

The feature was put together at short notice, so I’ve had to keep the text rather brief. I hope that a few of you will find it interesting.
