St. Paul's Spire

This painting is a gift for someone whom I hope to see this evening, which is why the blog post is delayed.

St Paul's is a wonderfully elegant Victorian church on the edge of the Hampshire village of Ashford Hill, a few miles from my home. This view represents my first view of the building when I was walking in the area last spring: the tall, narrow spire emerging from lush greenery. However, the source image was taken more recently - a week last Sunday - and from the edge of the churchyard, not from the more distant footpath.

I had a few problems with the spire, which wasn't straight when I first painted it, but I think I sorted it out.
