A portrait and a church

The portrait of RLS is copied from a print of a painting by Girolamo Nerli (1860-1926) which is in the National Gallery of Scotland.

The church is in a village called Wadenhoe, by the river Nene. It dates back to the thirteenth century and some parts are of Saxon origin.  The church is situated on a hill above the village and river.

I like drawing churches because of the interesting shapes and irregularities, and because churchyards are usually very peaceful places to sit.
