I sketched this late one grey afternoon sitting under an old tree in the square in front of St Maclou which is a lovely Gothic Church surrounded by half timber buildings. People continually walked by and I dropped them in here and there in the drawing.
St McClou was probably my favorite church. A gothic pile of confection like a wedding cake encrusted on every surface with lace and gargoyles and embellishments of every kind.
The church is on the small side in the sketch but I like it a lot anyway. Originally I had the church too light. I was trying not to get it too dark but the house was too dominant so I had to darken it.
I also darkened the sky which made the very light church pop more.
Colors used. The ones I usually use aka I can’t remember which ones. Oops. Sorry!!
Thanks for reading.
