St Andrew’s Church, Marks Tey
Just finished yesterday, this is the first painting of my new Towers and Spires series.
I found this view of the church by parking in the little narrow lane which leads down to the church off the A120, and then walking back to the road bridge over the railway. I rather liked the way that the elevated view point made the church look very settled down amongst the trees. There are a random assortments of hedges and fences on the field, which seem to enclose a car park for church goers.
When my sister and I were little girls we went to Marks Tey Primary School, since demolished and re-built in a different location. My sister’s sole claim to acting fame is playing the part of Mary in the school’s nativity play in this church!
Beach Bags: I placed an order for some more beach bags this morning, featuring some of my sea paintings along with seaside-y quotes. I look forward to showing them to you sometime in the next week, and then they will go into my web-shop.
Hoping to go to The Field in the morning for my February visit, by which time I hope the wind has dropped a bit. Hope you don’t get blown away in these gales! Stay safe and keep warm. 🙂
