Faith - A Work in Progress

Today is unusually hot 93F (33.9C) with the humidity making it feel like 109F (42.8C). Hopefully it won't be as warm tomorrow.

Earlier this year when I was painting at St. John the Baptist Anglican Church with the Lakefield Creative Artists' Group I took some photographs of the inside of the Church.

I thought that window with the backlit silhouette of the crucifix would make an interesting painting.

I painted the entire canvas with a pale mixture of French ultramarine blue and titanium white.

I added some burnt sienna to the under paint and blocked in the walls around the window.

Next I need to work on tightening the up the drawing and then transferring the image onto the canvas.

I will post this painting again once the image has been transferred onto the canvas.
