La petite Chapelle de Saint-Cado

La petite Chapelle de Saint-Cado

Acrylic on canvas board 38 x 46 cm. I was out walking with a friend when we came across this ruin of a small church. I really liked the view from inside looking through the doorway towards the river - so went back on a sunny day to take a photo.

The painting only took a couple of afternoons. I added a fisherman for fun.

I found out later that Saint Cado was Welsh - so was my father!

Shadows
by: Dorothy, Carluke

Hi Audrey,

I like your painting and also your idea of framing the scene with the arch.

The only thing that bothers me is the shadows cast by the fence posts. It is just a thought but perhaps they should all be running in the same directon.

Hope you don't mind me saying.

Dorothy
