|Plein air ( 3 visits ! ) 16 x 20" Oil on canvas|
This is a lovely view of the Minster towers from the north west with the backs of houses in Minster Moorgate. I had to return to the site twice to get to this stage spending about an hour and a half each time. The weather is getting autumnal yet the sun can be hot when it shines. The picture is rather loose, not as detailed as my pen and ink sketches or indeed, my watercolours of the the Minster, so I hope you appreciate the effort. Overhead, high in the sky, swifts were flying, their last few days here before heading south. I was fortunate to teach at Beverley Grammar School for nearly 30 years and the Minster is the " school church ". As a school, we have attended many services at the Minster and on each occasion it leaves a lasting impression. Hope you like it.
