Communion - A Work in Progress

Today I am painting with the St. John's Art Group who was formerly called the Lakefield Creative Arts Guild.

It was decided that the Group would hold an art show in the fall of paintings of the Church to celebrate its 150th Anniversary.

We went through the Church both inside and outside making sketches and taking photographs of things that we would be interested in painting.

What caught my attention was the light coming through the stained glass window and touching the communion tray. I took a number of photographs of it and had plenty of reference material.

I also took photographs for at least three other paintings I may do for the exhibition from inside the Church.

We then set the dates and times for the show before we left for the day, which are as follows:
St. John the Baptist Anglican Church - 150th Anniversary Art Show and Sale
10 Sep - 29 Oct. on Saturdays from 11am-2pm.
Opening Reception 10 Sep 16 from 11am-3pm.

Once I returned home I started on the drawing and transferred it onto a piece of watercolour paper.

I masked out the areas where I didn't want covered in paint used for the background with liquid masking fluid.

Then I set this painting aside to dry and will complete it at a later date.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and enjoy the artwork.
