The past couple of weeks I have dipped into my sketchbooks to complete a few paintings from my trips to Europe and Great Britain. We have been to England several times and dearly love the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District areas of this wonderful country. On several occasions we have enjoyed staying with our friends the Hartleys at their lovely home in High Branthwaite. It is about a mile from the little town of Sedbergh in the Yorkshire Dales. In some respects the town appears as it has for hundreds of years. we especially like being there on market day in the little square next to St. Andrews church. On this particular day a morning rain had fallen bringing a fresh crispness to the air.
This is a travel sketchbook drawing of the St. Andrews Parish Church done on location in Sedbergh, Cumbria, England. This old church is the backdrop for the painting of market Day in Sedbergh above.
