St Edmund’s Canterbury, main school painting

© Peter Gander 2012  St Edmund’s main entrance
A second commission from local Canterbury school St Edmund’s. This time the main entrance, which faces the Whitstable road. This part of the building has lovely pale stonework and a gothic lancet arched doorway. The painting was very much ‘dabbed’ at to retain plenty of summery white paper spaces which infuse the work with light, (rather than lay down areas of flat colour). Winsor and Newton watercolour on The Langton Grain Fin 180gsm watercolour paper.
