The original painting is for sale.

I often walk by this church when I visit the local library or the farmers market, and I’ve always admired the architecture. Lately I’ve been using watercolor techniques when I paint with acrylics. You can see some thin washes of acrylic paint in the building and the grass. I made a preliminary drawing in pencil and I like to leave some of the pencil lines showing through in the finished painting. The extra line work can be used to indicate detail, here I used it to define the shapes of the windows. (The is the Calvary Episcopal Church).
