Sketches of the painting "West Parish Church from the Children's garden pagoda"

 I recently completed a new studio painting, a view of the West Parish Church from the Children's garden pagoda in Andover, Massachusetts. I was awe struck by the tall white steeple. The light shining on it what so bright and pure.

I wanted to share with you some sketches done at location. Although the painting was done using photograph, the sketches helped me clarify the architecture and its details.

My inspiration for this painting was the tall white steeple, the light shining on it. I search for different compositions and finally arrived at this view.
