This was a private commission for some friends that got married in this church on a beautiful Summer day with a clear blue sky and wanted this painting to be a memory of that special day. The church is in the village of Babworth near the town of Retford in Nottinghamshire in the UK and has connections to the Pilgrim Fathers.
I tried to resist my usual temptation of giving it a slightly sinister, slightly surreal look and tried to make it look as happy as I am able...which I hope I have achieved, they haven't seen it yet! I wanted to have some white Summer clouds in the sky to break up the blue but they insist it was a cloudless day; I set the clock to 2.00, the time that they were married.
Oil on canvas 27 1/2" x 27 1/2". There is a step-by-step progress through this painting in previous posts on this blog.
