I do love to see a traditional parish church, don't you. This is one I regularly pass. Yesterday I stopped to take a few photos of it as the sun had broken through the cloud and it was looking particularly nice I thought.
Wednesday is my day with mum and she had brought quiet a few of her snowy paintings to share with me. I'm sure they inspired me to get my own paints out and try a little watercolour sketch.
I used this painting in particular to see how mum dealt with the sky and the snow ... you can't just leave it all white.
Here's my finished picture. A looooong way off mum's standard I know, but I'm still quiet happy with how it turned out. And it makes a good advent picture I think.
I know I'm lucky to have mum's encouragement and advice. She even got me the right brush to do the tree branches, and that was a big help.
Thank you mum.
Happy Advent Lovelies.
