Another church

I'm not sure what my obsession is with sketching churches lately.  Sometimes, they just remind me of a pretty community that feels like home (in this case, this one is in my hometown and I didn't do it justice).  In other instances, they provide the most beautiful architecture around.  Sometimes, it's the fact that people will build a church anywhere to capture that sense of community, in the most unlikely of places.  I must admit, I don't often go inside, but I am intrigued by the edifaces.



Don't forget to check out Sunday Sketches.  They will surely brighten up your Sunday!

  10. churches are wonderful structures - nothing architecturally portrays "community" and "town" than a nice, central church - or mosque, or other religious structure. I love this one! I particularly enjoy the detailed wooden slats

  11. What a great thing to get obsessed about! Love your sketch! I'm practicing drawing birds- you'd think it was so simple to draw birds, but I'm finding it's not!!!! Patsy from

  13. churches can be such beautiful structures. Sketching them must be so great for learning size and shape and relationship to all around it. This is lovely.
