Painting Colonial Christ Church

Christ Church was built in colonial times on the old "King's Highway" in honor of King Charles of England. Today the road beside the church has become busy North /South Highway 17, but the church and grounds remain a restful place of worship for a large, active congregation.

The image above is an 11"x 14"plein air (painted on location) oil painting of Christ Church. I used yellow and orange tones to reflect the warm glow of the setting sun reflected onto the historic church and grounds.

Oil on canvas panel 11" x 14"
Price: $375.00.

I enjoyed the sunny afternoon painting Christ Church. The west facing church sheltered by a large Live Oak tree reflects the late afternoon sun beautifully, making an inspiring subject for a plein air artist.
