THROUGH WOODS AND FIELDS TO HALSALL CHURCH – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

Another old favourite – Halsall Church, the village church, which is a few miles across the Moss from where I live in Southport. I did a similar view ages ago which sold. In spring, summer and autumn the church is obscured by foliage and it was only in December that I spotted the view again as I cycled around on a sunny day. The sandstone of the church in sunlight blends well with the winter coats of trees, and in this view I focussed more on the Church. The painting now sits in the window of my framer, hopefully awaiting purchase.

Other painting of churches and landscapes are available for sale on my website: grahammcquadefineart.com

    • I buy imperial sheets of Arche 140lb not, 30×22 ins. Very occasionally I use a full sheet, sometimes half a sheet and more often, a quarter sheet. I have frames and mounts for each, so if one painting doesnt sell, I just swap another in its place. This was on a quarter sheet.

  1. Doing it for my own entertainment is certainly my driver as well, but there is a great sense of ratification when someone is prepared to pay money for it. I would recommend having a go – it opens up many other issues for the artist.

  2. Excellent painting of a distant church, you really did a good job on the trees. It reminds me of one of the churches around here, actually it was the first church ever built in Upper Canada, which later became Ontario.

    • Thanks Shawn. I do like the trees that surround the view and they have a good form with the light.
      Most of this church is relatively new – late 19th century though bits are from the 14th – so I guess overall, your church is older.
