Saint John the Baptist's Church, Coventry.
16 x 22 inches watercolour and pencil on paper. I love this church very much and paint there whenever I can. Its opening hours are less than those of the nearby Holy Trinity and so I tend to work faster here and take more risks with the painting. Hurrying does tend to concentrate the mind when considering such things as what to leave in or out etc. I have noticed that three of my paintings of this church, all of which are on this site, form a panoramic view of considerable breadth and they give me the idea for doing a very large watercolour in instalments, depicting not only space but time as well.
