View From The Cloister (watercolor 15 x 23) $600
This is Westminster Abbey as seen through the wrought iron work of the cloister. It is the view visitors now see just before they exit the abbey complex. But for hundreds of years it was the view seen by the monks on their way to services.
Or purchase a fine art print.
Pilgrims and the Gate (watercolor 15 x 20) SOLD
This is Canterbury. I began with reference photos showing Canterbury Cathedral’s spires rising above the gate, but in the end I cut back to the gate itself. The gate is now the only approach for tourists, and the streets leading up to it are charming. But despite the Tudor buildings, it is modern. There are Starbucks and Subways. These tourist use smart phones and get their cash for ATMs. Rather than providing a refuge and a place to sleep for pilgrims, the cathedral charges a fee to tour the cathedral and view the place where Thomas a Becket was murdered.
Like the Arch of Titus below, this painting is primarily poured rather than painted with a brush. The result is rich color with a graphic feel.
This painting has sold, but you may purchase an art print.
