English Baptist Church ~ Carmarthen, watercolour

The English Baptist Church in Lammas Street, Carmarthen is set back from the road and is accessed through a gap in the shops. This means that you cant actually see the entire front of the Church. I have moved the buildings forward in this painting which is a commission, to show the whole fa├žade. ( Lammas is a strange word and refers to an old festival going back to pagan times held on the 1st of August.) . Anyway I finished the painting this morning.

This afternoon I was teaching and it all went well. Having taken the dog out I am now going to read a bit more of Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the d’Urbervilles .
