Church Tower painting -Is the universe conspiring against me? #4950Painting 12

Painting in progress of Radclive church tower

Part of the 49/50 Painting Challenge.

Some weeks go more smoothly than others.

This week should have been easy.

  1. I decided to do the tower, which should have been last week.
  2. I’ve had some wonderful suggestions, there’s a wonderful water tower near Mursley which would have been fantastic, I’d need to go for a drive.


  1. I’ve had car trouble so photo opportunities were restricted. Which has meant I’ve had to keep it really local.
  2. My inspiration/ideas were thin on the ground,

Until I remembered church towers!

There are a few of those around Buckingham. I settled for Radclive Church, partly because it’s a simple little tower, but also because it’s next to where my studio was in Radclive, and it seemed fitting.

Here’s the work in progress.

Having finished, it still feels a bit too traditional for me.

So, I might be kicking over the traces for the next one, 13 Tap.

I already know exactly what it will be!

Curious about the 49 50 Painting Challenge.
