St Thomas’ Church, Friarmere, Delph Heights
Acrylic ink & watercolour on paper
This is a painting that I started outdoors during Storm Larisa, but went home to finish it. The wind, snow and whipping branches sent me packing to a warm fire and a bottle of Timothy Taylor’s Landlord.
Storm Larisa brought heavy snowfall to the United Kingdom, Belgium & Netherlands 8–10 March 2023.
St Thomas' Church, Friarmere also known as Heights Chapel, featured in a major film ‘A Monster Calls’ starring Liam Neeson, Sigourney Weaver and Geraldine Chaplin. Based on the children’s novel by Patrick Ness, the book won both the prestigious Carnegie Medal and its sister prize for illustration.
The painting is for sale at The Swan Inn in Dobcross.
