Artist's Description

The town of Christchurch, Dorset, UK boasts a wonderful priory, painted and photographed many times over the centuries. Construction first started in 1094 AD as a norman church. It took several centuries to construct and is a landmark for several miles in all directions. This painting depicts a view from the well kept high street, looking at the main gates to the entrance of the priory. The painting is in oils on a canvas board measuring 12″ × 16″. The original photograph was taken in the summer of 2010 but then heavily cropped to give the ‘straight on’ composition that is seen. I wanted to get the gates archway lined up with the main door way. The late afternoon sun helps to pick out the details of the churches architecture, and does describe a later part of the priory with the stone appearing to be more golden and less weather worn ( botton of the tower).
